I paddled through a 40 to 50 drift of snow on the edge of upper lake yesterday took the sleds out last week seems to be a ton of doomsday predictions out there and I know that there is not as much snow as there could be but with the BV hole sic at 500-900 cfs and with lake runnin every day there is very high quailty boating in this valley and there will be until the end of july I would willing to place a significant bet that the Ark gets over 1500 easy this year any takers?
Based upon a little used algorithym that I found in my notes from survival camp which factors the angle of the sun two weeks from solstice, the adiabatic lapse rate, sublimation ratio, surface permeability and friction coefficients, realtive humidity, big spongy things getting in the way, thirsty mule deer, Coors, those really thirsty bushy things growing on the banks, full moon, available condensation nuclei, winds aloft, cloud cover, smimmers wearing cotton, rock fall, spilled beer, etc., you can expect peak of 1,132.7562 at 16:50 GMT Tuesday June 8, 2004. More or less.
