All right, folks, help me out. If 42,562 acre feet of water tumbled into Powell yesterday, and if an acre equals 1/640th of a square mile, does this not equate to the inundation of 66.5 square miles with one foot of water?
 
Here is an link to an article posted today from the Grand Junction Sentinel about snow pack and other "river stuff"-- Its amazing how the % of snow pack - though important--- is irrelevant this time of the year -- Regardless there is a "bunch" of water headed to the lake

I traveled the last few days from Grand Junction to Denver. I followed the Colorado, Eagle and Gore (in the Vail Valley)- The Colorado is rocking as was the Eagle but the Gore was relatively clear near the drainage of East Vail -- That just shows you how much runoff is still to come from the upper high country --

 
I'm more in the "bunch" of water camp, than trying to remember all that fancy math stuff
