It doesn't look like this year's snowpack will be adequate to overcome the diversion capacity, unless there are a lot of late season storms that hammer the Upper Rio Drainage Basin.
Ohhhh come on!
It'll be fine, always is, to some degree or another.
A series of late storms is exactly what happened in '11. I was still on the Box mid July...in a raft. No chit.
Now, if we could just get those no-talent, ass clown "journalists" at the Sante Fe paper to stop bad mouthin the water up here...
