The Flood of 2017
Carson River off Ninth St in State Park.
Above Ft Churchill, flash flood entering Carson River. No stream normally comes in here.
Above Ft Churchill, looking downstream on the Carson River flooding.
Above Ft Churchill, flooding through a barbwire fence.
Downtown, diversion ditch is very full.
Pine nuts are beautiful with snow still on them.
We survived the flood of 2017. It was pretty big but fortunately not literally devastating. Lots of road closures and the road up Six Mile is a total mess. Won't be repaired for quite some time, I think.
Our place is fine since it isn't in a flood area. The ground thawed out and the pens are back to their normal reasonably dry well drained state.
