    With that forecast I can easily predict a Yolo or Sutter card waiting for me when I check for ressies this Saturday :sp:sp

    Real high tides coming the middle of next week, hope I don't end up sand bagging!

    Noticed that as well, it could get dicey.
    Now that you got a "heads up" are you in prep mode for the rising waters?

    As much as I can be, I have access to sand/bags. My levee is sound, however there are others whose levees are not as high, or in as good of condition. Luckily, Conn Dam should not go over, so that will help a lot. It would take about 5 inches of rain in three or less days plus the high tide when the runoff hit. The river has a reaction time of about 8 hours.
