Something isn't right with the Mackinaw River water meter I normally watch. To the point I'm comfortable saying it is just lying to me....straight to my face.
A peak of almost 4000cfs is pretty impressive (I think 400 is about the max for safe wading), but that is where she sat two days ago. I believed it because we melted off about fifteen inches of snow in a 2-3 day period - that on top of thawing the ground water.
Then the flow started to fall, so I thought maybe an ice dam was to blame. Today I check and she's all dried up? Something ain't right. In fact, it's the only meter around currently registering a drought...
Anyone have an explanation? It's almost enough to make me drive out there and look.
