    BrianMc, I'm seeing some vids in my Facebook news feed of some friends doing the Death March gravel road race this morning...trying to cross flooded portions on the upstream end of Monroe Res. Gravel roads that are always flooded, and usually rideable in low water conditions, but are rather treacherous with the high water right now.

    ^ Death March Gravel Road Race in floodwaters? They don't sound like average cyclists to me! :)

    Definitely not. What does it say about me that I know better than a dozen folks who did that race? I saw videos of a few trying to ride across as the water rose above their hubs. And saw pics of others, bike on their shoulder, hiking through waist-deep water. I'm thinking local shops will be doing killer business on bearing service over the course of the next month.
