Looks like the snow levels dropped a bit which allowed Reno/Sparks to dodge the flood bullet barely.

Very cool.

Yeah, good stuff. I'm glad I live up the hill from the Truckee River though. It would take Noah type conditions for us to get flooded ;). My wife and I just took a walk down by the river, and it was swollen and bringing all kinds of debris with it.

I used to live by the levees in Sacramento. That could be a nightmare in rainy season, waiting for alarms and news of a sudden break, all the while seeing the water lap up to the bottom of the Tower Bridge. Yikes!

We lived on the West Sacramento side, the poor side, and urban legend was those a-holes in Sacramento would blow the levee on our side if it came down to it! Hahaha.... I'm not even sure that would save their hide, but it seemed plausible in that paranoid mindset.

Final storm tally in Verdi: 7.62" rain, 58 mph max wind gust. Truckee is up with trees floating down the river, but not too bad really.

Nice pfoto Cragman. RE: the topic - Saw on the Yosemite webcams that the Merced had risen quite a bit this afternoon, and Yosemite falls was about Spring runoff volume. Would be a good time to break out the spinning rod.

But these pussy California rivers

Yep

When I was in Borneo the fuking river rose 10 feet over night in one little storm during the night.

Me and Hoover where on top of one of the towers in a dome tent and it rained so hard it pushed the tent poles straight down on top of us.

I love the jungle where its moist, warm, sh!t crawls everywhere, you sink in mud and bugs attack incessantly.

Jungle is very nice not like stupid Americans who make stupid sterile shopping malls ......

Werner according to my calculations, you just used up your life-time limit on the word "stupid".

Please find an appropriate substitute for the remainder of your existence.

A thesaurus is really nice for these redundancy limits.

:)

Upon further review, you share this honor with Locker, who creatively chose "sutpid" as his alternative use.

I was in a big sterile American shopping mall today, one of those lifestyles of the rich and famous malls. They realized I was an imposter (ran a credit check on me) and escorted me OUT.

Not till I saw the new James Bond film though. 50-year franchise, and the first Bond movie I ever saw on the big screen. I liked the movie and flu recovery (real influenza, no joke, lost 10-15 lbs in 3 days!) is complete.

Speaking of scary waters and movies, you should check out The Life of Pi. Very cool ocean cinematography, unsterile India, and big feelings we American dudes have to pretend we can't feel.

Too bad about the flu, man. But, you know, with the lbs gone you can crank harder now ;).

I get the flu shot every season now, but some people think it's witch craft or something. And if it is, bravo, ladies.

Ive had Life of Pi sitting on my nightstand for a long time, Burl gave it to me. Haven't cracked it. Worthy read?

I'm told it's excellent. I don't know. I don't like to spoil my movie viewing experience by reading the book ;).

The movie was better than I expected but I've heard the book is excellent.
For those of us with ADD the movie will have to do. But the Meerkats were
a bit much.

We got 9 inches or rain here in Wawona and 10.5 inches at the south gate in 5 days. If that had been snow at badger it would have been epic. High snow lines and just enough time between to empty the streams and it did no damage.
