Could it be that the Sky is really running at 90k?

If you re-call the gauge broke in 2006 when it hit 129k. There was another 8 or 10 hours of rise and peak before it came down that year if my memory serves me correctly.

Quite the wild year of warm rain fall floods were having though, 3 so far all close together. Here is to hoping that our temps drop fast and we start turning good snow in those hills for next year!

Fact.

Floodlust is sick, but deep snowpack and cold Spring's are sicker.

Some eye opening updates from Skyko from during and after the last big flood.

for anyone who's really good at math:
In 2006, we had about 3.5' of flooding at our house on the S. Fork (at whatever the gauge was - it had broken before the peak).
This past week, we had about 1.5' of floodwater in our yard (according to our neighbors; we will be going up tomorrow to assess the damage!)
So, if you're really good at math, maybe an extrapolation is in order.
