Batten the hatches

"Oh, Boy," as Hank The Cowdog would say!  Check what the Pokey People have to say this morning about our upcoming weather:

"Low pressure moving through Utah, then over Idaho on Sunday, will bring heavy rainfall and high elevation snow to central and southern Idaho. The storm will develop precipitation late Saturday night and continue through Monday night, with clearing developing by Tuesday afternoon. The clouds and cold air will keep afternoon temperatures in the forties and fifties, some fifteen to twenty degrees below normal for this time of year. The rains could also put stress on smaller rivers and creeks, many of which are already at bankfull. People recreating this holiday weekend should exercise caution with the strong flows on all creeks and rivers."

Then take a gander below at the wide extent of various flood warnings, watches and advisories as this morning.  The Snake's running 31,200 cfs right now.  Oh, Boy, indeed!
