This is just a quick movie about the flooding that is happening in the Truckee River. I think it’s kind of cool.
Q: Have you ever seen the water this high?
A: I’ve seen it once or twice you know, but never really like this. I mean, it’s immaculate guys.
This is how it goes man. Right down here, as you can see, it’s really getting hot.
The ducks! The ducks are sitting on the side because they don’t even want to get in the water. If that ain’t bad… what is man?

Q: Is this the highest you’ve ever seen the Truckee River?
Yeah, besides a couple weeks ago yeah. It’s pretty crazy.
Q: Cool, do you think we’re still going to flood?
I really hope not because I live literally across the street there. I’m pretty glad they built that wall so I’m hoping we don’t flood.
I live on the bottom floor so if we flood, I’m screwed.

Q: What used to be down here? It’s just a river now.
It is a side walk. The pathway goes under… but now it’s part of the river. It’s crazy!

Q: So the river is flowing a little less than it was in January?
Yes. It’s flowing a little lower than it was in January. It’s a little more mucked up too. In January it was grey and dark and very, very dramatic.
This is really something, it’s the Mighty Truckee.
I bet you if the fish could get out of the river, they would too! 😀
