    Actually here is snow map report that shows 3/4 of an inch of water as of today from snow left ! Go argue with NOAA

    Of course there is no snow left today. Nice spin attempt though.

    You saw the map I linked to from NOAA, and "OF COURSE there's no snow left today..."
    But NOW you believe there's .75 inches?

    Re: the drought that wont end

    FF, I think what he is trying to say is that there is 100%+ snow pack in much of the western mountains and that as it melts it will flow east and make the Delaware rise for days on end.

    How's that for spin?

    Re: the drought that wont end

    Bottom line is the reservoirs are pretty full and it looks like to be a great Spring. Having bought a farm up here last year ( I'm not a farmer , just a beautiful property to raise our kids). I love to see the reservoirs filling up but still maintaining a safe void and flow control.We have the Susquehanna flowing through the front of our property and the west branch is 10 minutes away. My home never flooded,just some water in the basement at the worst of any of the floods,but many of the homes did. It was something I was very conscious of when looking for a home here. Many homes were under water during those floods.So far so good with the Susquehanna,it's pretty high but still within its banks ,and there's a large field with a pretty steep bank up to the road and our house ,shop and barns are on the other side of the road elevated above the road. I pass the
    West Branch just about everyday and it's high and a little muddy,but nothing out of control.
    Hopefully we'll get to float the drift boats this year,never got a chance last year just too busy.

    Joe, when I said it wouldn't last, I was assuming nothing as you said. I don't really have to assume. I work in the watershed. I SAW the snow. If you look at the graph you'll see that a day and a half or so after my post the level had stopped rising, flattened out and was headed down. There is no snow left save for some shaded areas and some plowed piles. The current rise is due to the rain. And rain it has. The water lords should be happy.

    I added the graph after Fred called me and said we where BOTH wrong.As of yesterday there is still snow left as you can see in the graph below.

    Not sure why there is even a debate?

    For those who really care about the fishery we are all happy campers.

    All Reservoirs are over 90%
    Cannonsville went from 17% into the 90's
    There is some snow left to melt
    Looks like a forecast this week with a good amount of rain
    The rivers are all full.
    Good chance of a spill.

    All is well.Time to move on.

    Re: the drought that wont end

    If the forecast for rain is correct this week the Cannonsville will spill.Right now it's at 97.5%

    Why are you here making noise, and not enjoying the amazing spring skiing up in VT? Unlike the rest of the boobs here, you don't have to worry about breaking a hip.

    Roll up the windows Brian, you're letting the stank out.

    Re: the drought that wont end

    The Cannonsville has started spilling.With the current inflow and the forecast for more rain it should pick up steam and we'll have a pretty significant spill.

    With the inflows into the Pepacton and the Neversink they will probably start spilling in the next few days as well.

    WATER WATER EVERYWHERE

    I'd say the drought is officially over.

    So, that fat lady has sung, the last chair has been folded, the last pitch thrown, the last shot taken, the last drop drank, just remember:

    “The end of THE END is the best place to begin THE END, because if you read THE END from the beginning of the beginning of THE END to the end of the end of THE END, you will arrive at the end.”

    We have just been set-up for the next drought....

    Re: the drought that wont end

    All reservoirs are spilling.They are predicting Walton to crest at about 7000 cfs tomorrow.That means 7000 over the top plus the release of 1410.

    The Fat lady has sung.

    LU No idea what your saying but sounds good to me.
