Sudden OBJ gauge change

OBJ isn't really done is it? On the AW page it was only showing 250 cfs today (and it was showing the same roughly for the previous days even though yesterday and the day before it was actually reading around 470 cfs).

Can a Crested Butte local please verify that something just happened to the on-line gauge and it will probably still hold through the weekend? (I'm flying out tomorrow and need to know if I need to drive from Denver to CB)

I am not up in CB so take this for what its worth. . .but, I think that the gauge is back to normal now. About a week and a half ago, the guage went straight up from in the 300s to about 600 for no apparent reason (I don't think there was rain or a really hot day). Then the guage read high for the last week or so. Then suddenly the guage dropped back to where it was before and the flow curve looks pretty natural now. So my guess would be that the gauge is correct. Also, OBJ doesn't always make it into July, and especially this year, which was a much smaller snow year overall for CB than last year.

Can someone in CB please let me know if OBJ will still be runnable on Sat/Sun even if it's an ELF run (extremely low flow)
