A Taste of Fay?

A view of the Delaware River as seen from Bowmans Hill Tower. The river cuts through the hard diabase rock of Sourland Mountain, which looms above the river on the Jersey side. The Lambertville-New Hope wing dam and diabase boulders create the best whitewater on the main stem Delaware River. The tower offers spectacular views of the heart of the piedmont Delaware River watersheds in Bucks, Hunterdon and Mercer Counties.

Looks like we're in for a little rain thanks to the long-lived Fay; perhaps just enough to water the lawns and late summer vegetables. But we might end up with zero precip since the center of this thing seems to be west of the mountains.

Maybe Gustav will kick more rain our way late next week? It's headed somewhere along the Gulf Coast.

The Lake Hopatcong release is scheduled to start September 2, that will bring the Musconetcong River back up to near canoeable levels.
