Almost Back to Normal

March 25 (two weeks ago)

March 27 (even higher)

April 5 (three days ago)

April 7 (yesterday)

Where did it all go? The ocean surely must be full now. But, yesterday, we had high winds. (Did they blow all the water away?) 

" South wind 25 to 35 mph with gusts 35 to 50 mph. Local gusts to 60 mph. "
We noticed.

On our walk/run yesterday, we had to lean into the wind or be swept off our feet. We watched as an Alaska flight, on approach from the west to PDX, was diverted. Tugboats had trouble keeping control of their barges. One, approaching the I-5 Bridge, spun completely around. Another, upriver, managed to hold steady mid-river but was using a lot of power to do it.

It'll be interesting to see what's in store for the river today.
