    Photo Assignment: Water

    Don't hate it, embrace it.

    An abundance of water means rushing creaks and waterfalls. Let's take some photos of water.

    Mother Nature is pressing hard on the rain pedal in the last 30 mins. It is epic.

    Great photo!

    This is some serious weather... I woke up a few times last night due to the wind. I was sure we were going to lose power.

    Well, I guess it's official, I am now a Californian. After 13 years of living here, a rainstorm is interesting to me. Ohh, what have I become?

    THE TRUCKEE RIVER NEAR TRUCKEE.
    * FROM LATE SATURDAY NIGHT TO MONDAY MORNING...OR UNTIL THE WARNING
    IS CANCELLED.
    * AT 8:30 AM FRIDAY THE STAGE WAS 2.8 FEET.
    * FLOOD STAGE IS 4.5 FEET.
    * MAJOR FLOODING IS FORECAST.
    * FORECAST...RISE ABOVE FLOOD STAGE BY EARLY SUNDAY MORNING AND
    CONTINUE TO RISE TO NEAR 8.2 FEET BY LATE SUNDAY MORNING. THE RIVER
    WILL FALL BELOW FLOOD STAGE BY SUNDAY EVENING.

    Saratoga Creek right behind my house, USGS site showed a peak of 200cfs up in Saratoga. Looks like I got some new firewood:





    And yep, those are ducks out in the stream:



    It was only about 4' wide last week (@ 2cfs):


    And I would assume the San Tomas Aquino Creek bike trail will probably be closed until Monday at least. Water levels should drop fairly fast but it'll take the city some time to clear out all the mud and debris on the underpasses.

    And the sun just broke through the clouds, the solar heat just kicked on at the house!
