Kenai Klobered?

Good Day,
I hear tell that the Peninsula got hammered. A "warm weather" storm hit with high winds and heavy rains, upwards of 4 to 8 inches over 24 hours in some locations. River data from the south central shows some rivers and streams with a 2 to 10 fold increase, and satellite photos sugest that its not over yet!
Is anyone hunkered in up there? Give us an update!
I remain in an El Ninio state, all be it mild...

I was supposed to fish the Kenai this weekend. I read the weather and cancelled. Two buddies of mine did go down to check traps and ran the Lower Kenai from just upriver of Bing's to Skilak Lake. Sounded miserable - high winds and rain all day Saturday. Water levels were reported as "a bit higher than summer." By now it should be almost too shallow to run a boat through Thompson's Hole. That has yet to be the case this winter. There was a small stream flood watch through yesterday, and expect as a result that the Kenai will rise for the next few days as the feeders drain. Looked to be about 3 feet below flood stage when I checked yesterday.

The southern end of the Peninsula was worse hit again with this storm. Oil Well Rd. to the Caribou Hills washed out again, the Sterling Hwy ended up closed at Anchor Point again.

KLOBERED

AKNIGHTINAK,
Thanks for those Anchorage Daily News articles! The Caribou Hills Winter Run had some great pics, and I got 2 NOAA sites for AK on my favorites! Stay dry, man...

Update-
One of the ice-dammed lakes above Skilak Lake in the middle river let go. The river should crest again by today or tomorrow.
Daily News article from this morning
Weirdest winter I've seen. Hit 50* a couple days ago.

Send some of that rain to the western great lakes we are bone dry here and now we are getting a little snow and cold temps which is not a big help to our low rivers.

Happy Thanksgiving !
