      Jerry alerted me to the NOAA weather forecast and I just came from the web site–for Christmas nite and next 2 days- 7-10 inches of rain.
      That could be catastrophic.

      I plan to be down Sunday and expect it to be epic.  If the forecast is right, I suspect very little will be “runnable”.  Creeks will be scary high and the Saint will be raging.  You think we’ll see 18+ feet over D bridge, Chuck?

      I was wondering if Jim and Doris are thinking they’ll have to move their camper?

      Curtiss- the flood of ’93 (peaked out at 23′ over the bridge- 4 feet over the new bridge) was a 5″ rain over the span of the night. Anything over 5 inches, over 12 hours, is going to be much higher as the river is already up and the ground is soggy-saturated and can’t take any more water.
      DD- Doris and Jim will have to move their trailer. Di and I are going to call them after 8am.
      After the flood of 93 there were a LOT of changes to the river. Decap rock appeared and we lost a good ender hole at big drop. Double drop changed, and the dam lost some rocks.

      Is anyone planning to paddle tomorrow? If so, what? I would love to try some big water, but I need to borrow a few items to stay safe out there… Creekboat, skirt with implosion bar and a wet or drysuit. Thoughts on tomorrow?

      Or is Monday going to be the better day due to debris? We had some crazy flows recently in the pnw, floodlust.

      Is anyone paddling today? I’d be down to try a huge Saint.

      I am trying to get on Stouts, but it would be my first time. Missed Chuck and Di – they are already likely having a blast…. might have to negotiate my way out of more family obligations but I’m never around when it’s running!
