Glass is going to over flow I am afraid, rumor has it SRP anticipates the lakes will fill and spill and they will be sending water down the salt to Mexico some time this week toward the weekend? they have already increased flows out of horseshoe lake

Big cell approaching Alamo right now from the west.  Could easily take it up to conservation pool but since contractor still hasn't done chit we can bet on them dumping it all down the drain again.  Sure would be nice of them to leave the water until the contractor has actually mobilized and is ready to work.

10,000cfs heading down the the 3 feeder rivers going into Alamo (correction 25,000cfs is now coming down Burro creek) and I am thinking the river bottom is still saturated could be interesting, Agua Fria running at 17,200cfs and big flow in the Verde, Tonto and Salt going to be muddy mess for a while I am sure they will dump horseshoe lake now any day.

Alamo up 4' today getting near trigger point where the CORE is required to release water for flood control, SRP dumping horseshoe lake into Bartlett so it will fill within a few days with cold muddy water, no releases from Bartlett, Rosy getting lots of water from both ends. I just had a huge thunderstorm come through 1.03" of rain and hail in about 20 mins I am just at 3" for this storm since it started and another colder storm next week.

Alamo up over 8' since yesterday and still rising :o, thought is they may start releasing water Monday (under the flood control guide lines) and it is several feet over full pool right now

Remember that the Corp cares nothing about the fishing or recreational use of the lake.  They will likely do the worst thing possible for users and wait until the spawn to suddenly drop it.

Woke up to 5575 cfs releasing from Horseshoe.  Bartlett is going to fill very fast now.
