Fort Collins Crankin'?

Anyone checked the flows? Why is Fort Collins crankin' over 3000? Is there some sweet gnar at this level?

Woah Nellie! That's a Poudre flood of epic proportion!

Either a dam just blew up or it's a gauge error. My guess is the latter. Can anyone in the canyon chime in?

i drove up the canyon yesterday afternoon, and the river was a trickle - maybe 0.5' on the gauge, and it was almost dry in town. i guess that could have changed overnight, but i don't see it happening unless long draw or joe wright res. dams burst.

Fix it!

I emailed Eddy Flower to see if they can fix that.

The river is NOT flowing. I called the Mish at 11am and they said it was low.

Those hippies are too messed up to know what the river level is. It could be flowing onto the deck and they wouldn't notice unless the bird got swept away.

Must have been the gauge ...

Did not notice any spikes on the gauges in Ft. Collins: CO Flows, Poudre at Canyon Mouth and Long Draw gauge. That would have been one hell of a fall release and run.
