Is Big Sur going off?

Any of you western slope folks checked out Big Sur in the last day or so? Cameo is over 21K. Are the dam gates open below and the waves woken up from a sleepy winter?

Above 30k if it does, hopefully pure bliss on a steep glassy wave that runs river wide. No idea how we will get back to our vehicles. May have to set shuttle downstream.

I don't think they had invented video the last time it ran. Maybe Super-8?

I really hope it runs this weekend. It might be my last time to go boating for a while.
