Imagine the power and force of the water . . .

We went to look at Canyon Lake last weekend. The lake is full and they are releasing water at something like 4000 cubic feet per second (cfs) into the Guadalupe River. Amazing! The normal flow of the Guadalupe is between 100-200 cfs!

We were winding our way back to San Marcos, checking rivers and creeks for high water levels, when we crossed the Blanco River. There was what looked like golf cart parts and a big BBQ pit stuck up in the cypress trees along the river.

Can you imagine the wall of water that carried those items along and placed them 20 feet up in the trees? Think of this next time you see water rushing over a road. Do not chance it. Turn around and don't drown.
