What Goes Up…

What a difference a day makes.  On Wednesday, December 17, I went down to where Riverford Rd. crosses over the San Diego River.  I realize that isn’t technically Santee, but it was the best spot to take some pictures of the river after all the rain we have had.  Then I stopped there again on Thursday, December 18, and talk about a difference.  Much of the water had passed downstream and the river was back to its regular channel, although much higher than usual.  So, here are some pictures showing the “before and after” of the flooding.

If the latest weather reports are on target, we should see another repeat of these scenes this coming week.  But this time we may see more runoff and flooding, so be careful out there.
