Water in the Desert: 2008 Runoff Edition

Charmed by yesterday’s trip north to see snow, I rode my bike up to the Alameda Bridge today to see the result. You can see from the picture that the Rio Grande at 2,000 cubic feet per second is sufficient to begin overtopping the sandbar island in the middle of the river. Lots more snow up north, lots more water coming down. This is gonna be a fun year.
