We should get another week or so out of the run.  It was low last night because of the cold temps (low 40's) but there is enough snow higher up to keep her running if we get a warm spell.  I think we need to wrap up the season with a FITW fetival next week complete with a BBQ and beer.

Agreed, and perhaps the first FITW Race.

FITW was LOW yesterday.

I was shocked at just how low, inches below the cup... still doable.

I think she may be done... others disagree but unless it warms up a lot, I'd say it's time for all the ELF boaters to get up there now... its still doable but you're gonna hit rocks :P
H2O please

It was ELF last night, but a really fun easy level. I did get cheese grated when I ran the last drop on the Fearsome upside down...I think today would be too low to run, we need some warmth and it will come up again...hopefully. Root Ball was fun at low water though.

She's ba-aaaaaack...

As of 6:30 this evening: Water flowing through cup with both peaks exposed. Healthy medium level. SF Gauge at 510. Looking at the forecast my guess is that it'll be in until Tuesday. Maybe medium-low tomorrow and lowish by Tuesday.

Checked it out on the way back over the pass.

Cool- sounds like yall been milkin the FITwatah for all its worth, as you should. Saw the guage at lower 500's recently and wondered if it would translate to some mediumness...

James- diggin the comparitve cuprock photos. That is the final step toward full Cup Enlightenment. Once we get some better res pics we'll be set, but even now this is sufficient to clear up this whole Cupdate D-bate.

Seriously- ask yourself:
Has AW, WKC, PDX, Seaatle Yahoo Kayaker what's is name offered anything like this to you, the descriminating beta consumer? not that they aren't all swell folks- but when the rubber hits the road, None of these other Interwebbulary desintaionoids can offer you a Cupdate, with an actual Cupdate Calibration Key to interpret said Cupdate...

I mean, if one is to profess, it should be more than a guess ...

SYOTWSR!!!!!!!!!!

The cup has water in it. Just a little bit flowing in and out.

Come on up for a perfect fun easy low to med flow!

It doesn't get any better than this!

Nice medium flow tonight. Water just barely flowing through the cup. Didn't look like it had dropped much, if at all, from the previous night.

Thinking that it should still be in at a low-medium flow tomorrow, and could bounce back pretty significantly if we get a hot, sunny day any time soon, or some more water up high.
