Saint Gauge
What's up with the Gauge? Could it have dropped out that fast?

I saw that! Looks like someone "pulled the drain plug"!

Don't worry, the season's not over yet!

We are wanting to get some boating in later this week. Just wondering if anyone had a visual on the level

My guess is that it's a glitch in the pressure-to-height transducer sensor at Roselle and that the actual level has changed little.
Of course, I could be ..... uh, all wet.

Good one John

Thanks!

Never seen it do that before. Looks like someone sucked a big portion out, or we had an underground phenom.
Once saw a lake near Big Creek go dry like water going down a drain when a roof to a sink hole under it collapsed.
I'll most likely get a visual today.

With thought...
I just realized that someone may have been lifting the gauge pipe.

Yep, the sudden drop in the Roselle gage reading looked like an artifact to me.

And now it's back where it was.

The Saint phone gauge is not answering plus it is hard to believe the hydrograph is correct.
I'll contact USACE. -- jt

Visual @ D
If anyone gets a visual at D it would be greatly appreciated to get the information.

Sheldon & I are wanting to boat Friday but he will have his son Walker (8 years old) in a tandem kayak. A good level is critical to the plan.

Thanks!!

I think the gage has come to it's senses:

And not even 3'8"??!! Is that all we got out of all that rain? Have the plants in their "fecundity" drank it all up?

I'm out for tomorrow. I hate to miss it, but I'm coming down with a cold or something and don't want to be on the river with my son if I'm "feeling puny."

The River can cure you of that Sheldon! The Saint has amazing curative powers!! I was sickish once I remember, and after getting my boat in the water and skirt on at Millstream, I remember thinking there was no place I'd really rather have been than at home in bed, but there I was ready to boat once more. So I did, and when I took out at D, I felt a LOT better!

Just anecdotal evidence, but...

Thanks, John, but ...
If it was just me, I'd be there without a second thought. But, since I was planning on taking my son in a (borrowed) Dynamic Duo, I'm not comfortable with it. I think we'd probably be fine, but I don't want to be responsible for his safety on the river if I'm feeling weak.

He and I went in the Duo two weeks ago at 11" and we both really enjoyed it. So I'm hoping in a couple of years he'll be tagging along in his own boat. I don't want to risk having a mishap now that might scare him off.
