High Water on the Colorado River

High Water is coming and it’s looking like it’s going to be “Huge” this year. I’ve heard this line a few times in my 30 some-odd years living in Moab Utah, so I’m always the skeptic when it comes to everyone running around saying it’s going to be the 100 year flow.
True: there is alot of snow in the mountains draining into our Mighty Colorado.
True: there is snow happening at this very moment above 6,000 feet.
But also True that we are having a cool spring, with a few days of hot, then a few days of cool weather. So the only thing we can wait for now is to see what the weather does and how fast the snow is going to come down. I do believe it’s going to be a good water year, perhaps it will come up to a decent level and hang for a few weeks… but a 100 year flow? I guess we’ll see. Of course, part of my skepticism stems from the fact that my personal guess for our local ‘high water pool’ is so darn low I really should just buy my beer payoff now and get it over with. 30,000 cfs???? What was I thinking!!
Here’s the site we’re going off of in case anyone out there is interested: Colorado river outside Moab
Fun Fun Fun!
