The river is rising fast! Massive rain on top of saturated ground is sending a stunning volume of water down the Potomac.

This chart shows that with data collected over 113 years, on January 26th the highest volume recorded at Point of Rocks (just downstream of us) is 72,500 cubic feet per second. At 9:30 this morning it was at 95,600 cfs and rising fast! It's already above flood stage and not expected to crest until tonight.

I will head down there tonight and take some pictures. (Don't worry, I am NOT bringing Winnie down there!)
