monsoon on top of peak

Monsoon rains forecast for today on top of close to peak flows. Keep an eye on the gauges and do a rain dance!

I'm dancing for the monsoon to park over bear creek!

While I fear many drainages are now past peak, this is not true everywhere. The Blue River is rumored to be flooding part of route 9 up above town of B. R. and it hasn't even been that hot. I'm hearing of about 6 feet of snow up near Brainard lake, that is dense enough to walk on, at least in the mornings. I think the highest stuff will keep running for a while yet.

The Blue ate thru Coyne Valley Rd just N of Breckenridge last night, and yes, Hwy 9 south of town has water over the road and DOT(?) frantically trying to fill or something to keep the river from eating the highway...gonna suck to drive the long way to the Ark

The elusive Bear Creek...that thing is never gonna' flow it seems.

Either way, just keeping that soil saturated and prolonging the best run off season ever!
