    Seems like there are a lot of tropical storms popping up in the Atlantic this year.

    That's crazy. I hope some of that finds it's way into useful storage facilities.

    I saw those plans 40 years ago. The dam was to stretch from the Kostner Ranch to the high point west on the Chambers place, maybe a mile and a quarter in length. Basically 3 miles south of Murdock. Seems to me that was abandoned because of the high salt content of the south fork.

    I don’t think this event will significantly impact Cheney Reservoir. The very heavy rain setup about 15-20 miles south of the run off basin which only eencompasses 664 square miles.

    Looks like another near miss to me.

    We need some serious rainfall upstream of Cheney Lake to get the level back up. I've seen it happen before. About 10-12 years ago Cheney was super low and we were nearing the point of restrictions, then we got some good rain over the course of a few months and the level rose back up. Hope that happens again!

    This seems like one of the oddest weather systems we've seen in a very long time.

    A nearly stationary rain event, mostly without any severe issues (wind etc), in late June, that is dumping scads of water in areas that have been mostly dry for a very, very long time. There has been almost no movement this morning.

    And almost ALL of it west of turnpike.

    Anything where you are pinstripers?


    And I realize it's too much too fast, and some areas are going to suffer from flooding....but it's got to be better than dry, right?
