What a mess. I recorded close to 13" of rain since Fri. Like a lot of docks, ours is just bobbing up and down in the cove. I need to get out there and put some slack in the cables, but with the wind our little paddle boat won't cut it. The James is headed down at least for now. Apparently more rain on the way. :shock:

934.13 at 7 A.M. Monday 5/1/17. ACOE says releasing 52,500 CFS at the dam but the James River alone at Galena was flowing 74,700 CFS yesterday. Then there's the Kings River and Beaver Dam is wide open plus all the major inflowing creeks too like Long Creek which closed AR Hwy. 103 to Green Forest.

NWS long range outlook was predicting another 1 to 2 inches Tues. night into Wed. but they have backed that off to 1/2 to 3/4 inch.

MoDOT has pre-positioned one of their portable electronic message board signs on the East side of 13 just North of the Lampe Ambulance Station. It is not turned on yet but on the East side of the road it will be aimed at Northbound traffic in the possibility of a KC Bridge closure that we have dodged by the narrowest of margins in previous high water events.

That's 52,500 at the spillway and another 10,000 through the generators.

That's 1.688 billion gallons per hour.

52,500 IS at the floodgates which are open a reported 4 ft. high. 10,000 CFS is thru only 3 generators as one is down for maintenance....great timing ? Thankfully, the release from Beaver has been able to be reduced.

Reason MoDOT gives for the KC bridge closing (premature in my opinion) is that the Lake is up into the underside girders and there is a current in the Lake. I call B.S. on that since the Lake has been slightly higher previously and the Bridge was not previously closed.

How high's the water Momma ? 934.51 at 12 Noon and rising.....but rising slower...

Gotta protect the $10 million we just spent on it I guess.

Appears to have crested (maybe) at 934.53 and has fallen about a 1/10th of a foot but it's got to be difficult to get good readings with these five and six foot rollers the winds are generating. Bridge closure was premature and completely unnecessary.

There's going to a run on lobster and wine at Ha-Bobs unless the bridge opens up soon.

Maybe the DOT knows something we don't. :blow:

The MoDOT website says the Lake has to fall far enough for their Engineers to examine the Bridge for damage.

Now what happened in prior years when the water was higher and the bridge remained open I ask you ? Were we all in peril of our lives using that bridge that had water get up into the underlying girders even further than yesterday ?

Definition of "Lake falls far enough" would be interesting to hear. More precip forecasted for tonight into Thurs. morning !

If you don't reside South of the Bridge you have no appreciation for the impact this baloney has on our lives. When it's necessary, sure, we want safety but based on prior events and water levels this is bull crap.

If that rainfall does occur we are in deep trouble...how deep is anyone's guess. As with Winter weather, it seems our pals in the electronic Media love to "hype" it and I sure hope that's the case here.

I know it's another upper Low that is supposed to stall over us again and that always brings lots of rain but the track of the Low will determine who and where gets what.
