Rivers still rising

By reeset / On / In Cycling, Family

So I’ve taken to keeping an eye on the Luckiamute River near Suver, OR (http://ahps2.wrh.noaa.gov/ahps2/hydrograph.php?wfo=pqr&gage=suvo3&view=1,1,1,1,1,1).  Hwy 99 crosses this river in a low spot and I’ve been watching this river go up and up and up.  Fortunately, I don’t think I’m going to see this cover the road.  It might flood just about everything else around it — but there’s just so much low-lying farm land that essentially, a new 12 foot deep lake will need to develop before water hits the highway — so I think I’m fine…I hope we’ll be fine.  I’m not sure I’d like to have to wade across a flooded road on with my bike…whew, I’m getting the chills just thinking about it.
