My kids screaming their friggin' heads off about the hail, several times yesterday, was a lot of fun.

This is pretty normal for this time of year. Just we’ve forgotten since it’s been so dry.

I hope, someday, they take out the Pillsbury dam and stop diverting water to the Russian River through Potter Valley so the North Fork of the Eel can recuperate.

Yes! I live right by the Eel and it'd be amazing to have healthy flow through the summer

I thought they were removing a bunch of those dams. Saw an article recently but didn't pay too close attention to which dams specifically were slated for removal.

When we were there this summer it was more the Eel Trickle. You could walk across it easilly.

Very cool. Recently completed development of the groundwater sustainability plan for Eel River. Neat to see a picture of it rather than looking at it through Google Earth!

GreasyPeter t1_izuf31s wrote

Some of it gets diverted to the Russian River, and that river needs it in the summer.

goathill t1_izvzckl wrote

The Russian river doesn't need the water, but the vineyards, ranches, cannabis farmers and city of Santa Rosa sure need the water.

Out near willow creek we have been getting snow every other day for awhile now. The hilltops are all white and it's glorious

I havent been out that way since October, but as someone that recently moved to Eureka from the Midwest, it makes me happy I don't have to drive too far to find snow

Oh, that’s so beautifully captured!! Being a lover of rain, and atmosphere, it’s perfect.

Every time I've been out and been bothered by the rain, I quickly stop myself and remember we need all the rain we can get.

EvLokadottr t1_izvsi4a wrote

And then flooding all of the farms that are alongside it, which can deposit some nice silt, though! Used to flood every year, anyway. Maybe not, now.

SF water comes entirely from Hetch Hetchy. However you feel about that, your post isn't remotely close to.reality.
