We flew over the destruction below our front range Thursday, where we saw vast swathes of mud. Somehow I was distracted for a moment occasionally by changes in our waters. Specifically the reservoir atop the Mesa hill, that's somehow dry after our heavy rain. The opposite at Laguna Blanca, where it's gone from nearly empty to full. Where the Bird Refuge had been so low you could walk out to two of the islands, it's now full too. Nearby at East Beach are the beached sailor's dreams so typical of our storms. For some reason, both boats ended up at creek outlets. Something to do with currents, where outflow stops their progress along the beach in wave action?

I've wanted pix w/locations identified. TV news coverage with their exceptional helicopter cameras seems to nearly all show the Olive Mill/Hot Springs intersection where their TV news trucks are. So I've been going thru our massive number of aerial pix from yesterday and looking up locations I'm not sure of on gMaps. Just now I finally started posting some of San Ysidro Creek on SBitZ.NET and will do more if there's interest. Meanwhile I'll send some to Ed too.

John, Your delightful pictures are always welcome. I'd like to know about the San Ysidro Ranch. We were without TV, phone and internet for 4 days. Thanks
