Broke the damn gauge on the French Broad here in town:

I had the day free to fish but wasn't sure about going last night so I checked the gauge before bed. Woke up this morning and the levels had doubled overnight.

Spent the day cleaning the garage and connected to the office on VPN... this rain is killing me!

Thats too funny.  I picked a good time to not be able to fish.  Nothing is even fishable.    ;D

The French Broad just dropped below flood stage in the past 24 hours but is still over 14,000 CFS.

I canoed a section here in town back on June 29th, it was at ~2,400 CFS.  I felt that was about optimal and wouldn't want any more.  My buddy Peter said 3,800 is supposedly the safe max for the average boater.

Raleigh's Falls Lake has been discharging at 3000cfs for several days. The engineers effed up the original plans for the wall, it is 40ft below what it should be and hence the gars will be swimming against the currents while they should be chilling and eating well. I have been here for 8 years and it's the first summer I have ever seen it running at full capacity b';

Spring must come really late at Fontana Dam.  Those trees still haven't leafed out.   'c;

After a couple years of drought, I said I would never complain about too much rain/snow. But 52" in six months!  :o Asheville, the new Seattle.

37" to date in my neck of the woods and we think we're really wet.

50.44" in Greenville

Eastern Transylvania County (as usual) looks like it is the big winner at over 80".  Good thing they aren't logging Courthouse Creek area right now.
