Watching the River

Lake Coeur d'Alene crested on Friday and on Saturday hundreds of mostly local people visited Falls Park in Post Falls to marvel at the Spokane River flowing at 37,800 cubic feet per second over the Post Falls dam. So just how fast and furious is the water with the spill gates wide open? Compare to May 2007 when the rate of flow was 9,684 cubic feet per second. Or the normal summer flow of 3,144 cfps in June and 1,028 cfps in July.

Great pics. We went out there earlier in the week, but I forgot my camera.

The past few weeks we've visited the Spokane Falls, Post Falls, and the flooding on Lake CdA. That's a lot of water!
