Thought I'd start another topic for this rain event.
For seeing how much rain has fallen, I use
Beaver jumped up from 1129.09 to 1129.26 between 6 and 7 this morning but didn't change at the 8 am reading. It has less than a foot of free board before they start to dump. Question is how much are they going to release?
Table Rock has 4 feet of free board. It's at 927.01.
Beaver area got a solid 3 inches or more. On east, we got a solid 2 inches plus. I don't think the James will rise too much - don't think TR got hammered like Beaver but TR is going to get a lot of water from Beaver pretty soon.
I'm hoping TR can hold what has fallen so they won't have to run too much water through us next week. I don't think it's a matter of flooding for us, it's a matter of whether we will be able to get to our dock, to keep our dock open. This does mean that TR will stay high through the Memorial Weekend which doesn't bode well for resort and marinas. I feel for the State Park guys... and others affected by this high water.
