    This point has been made. I have tried and tried to discuss alternatives which works for both the cattle guy and the whitewater community and he is absolutely unwilling to compromise.

    Here’s a question. If this is for his cattle…why is there only ONE fence going across.?

    It is time for eco-tage.

    The 1.5 inches came down too slow to do anything much.

    I dropped Di off at about 4:30. It looked like she had about 30″. When we left the van at D it was only at neg 7 inches. She may catch the pulse, which is a lot of fun! I suspect this water comes from Libertyville, which means it could drop pretty fast.

    Beautiful bridge! I hate to see it go. They spent this entire week so far just putting up signs LOL.

    At this rate the new bridge will be ready by 2026.

    The rain skipped Libertyville and mostly your area, but Farmington got a hit. Syenite might be coming up as I write this?

    I’m sure Big Boss CEO is going too sometime this aft/eve. She is sleeping from her night shift.

    Not only a bump, but a second higher bump as well! No idea where it came from, not a single area rain gauge shows activity. Did a dam burst somewhere?

    For what it’s worth we are getting a pretty good shower in Ironton right now.

    My graph is made up of data points taken over the years. There is some variation, and while I did not do a F-distribution to draw my curve, using median numbers seems to have worked well.

    0″ at Roselle is275 CFS.

    0″ at D bridge=about 320 CFS

    We left the river at 4:45, at 5 inches, and it was obviously coming up. May be a pulse- hope you are on the river right now!

    Don, your graph is the exact same one I’ve been using for years. My address must have gotten corrupted- thanx. I also saved one of Jim’s.

    I remembered when before the gauge they called our house.

    I remember Kent Pointer calling us at 4 am and Linda saying “Kent, is that you you SOB?” and Kent saying “No, this is some other boater”.

    neg 4 is about  170cfs.  neg 8 is100 cfs.  My chart ends at neg 12 inches with 60 cfs.

    The day Tracey, Eric, Santo did it, and Di, Mason and Dad, was a wonderful play day! I love that level.

    VERY nice getting the rain gauge from Santo as Govt rain gauges have been down for months. The river will be coming up again and soon today. Looks like I’m the river widower again! LOL
