It’s October the boards are out at Allegheny River Lock and Dam No. 9, No. 8, No. 7 and No. 6–the pool level is dropping in Pool 9 at a rate where the dock will be coming out very soon, if not in the next few days. Phoebe has confirmed that we will still have enough boat launch to do this dock thing and boat launch thing later this week. Kittanning levels have dropped and so have the ones here […]
Yes, Fred pounded the Gulf. Here in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania it impacted the location of our soccer practice one day and has us on dock and Kinzua watch. We are lucky that is the only issue for us right now but the consequences of climate change continue to show up everywhere. https://dashboard.waterdata.usgs.gov/app/nwd/?region=lower48&aoi=default https://dashboard.waterdata.usgs.gov/api/gwis/2.0/service/site?agencyCode=USGS&siteNumber=03030500&openhttps://dashboard.waterdata.usgs.gov/api/gwis/2.0/service/site?agencyCode=USGS&siteNumber=03030500&open=122357=122357 https://dashboard.waterdata.usgs.gov/api/gwis/2.0/service/site?agencyCode=USGS&siteNumber=03032500&open=122372 https://waterdata.usgs.gov/monitoring-location/03012550/#parameterCode=00010&period=P7D https://dashboard.waterdata.usgs.gov/api/gwis/2.0/service/site?agencyCode=USGS&siteNumber=03031500&open=122361
I had to pull this page back to the front. First we started with a paint job during the pandemic. It brightened up all of the old panelling and made those rainy days in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania a little warmer. Then in 2021 we added a little grilling space. Needless to say meeting virtually and communicating here saved several actual road trips. Here’s the scope all ceilings are 8′, all trim is to remain as is with exception where […]
Elle,Crosby and Phoebe set out to check on the current status of the Allegheny River along Seybertown Road this morning 20 July 2021. Here is what they have to report and video and photo. If you haven’t been watching Allegheny Outfitters upriver regarding emergency rescues or Kinzua gauges you may want to start following both areas. It appears this crazy rain event that started last Monday really added a lot of moisture to the watershed. Based on what I’ve been […]
All types of things are coming down the Allegheny today due to the high water that has been flowing. This tree actually made LESLIE think of the Loch Ness Monster. What do you think? Today has been a full day of dock work: pull it in and pull it in more with some aid to the neighbors as the river keeps rising. Today was a great day for futsal in the gym. Coach Dave. After the first week of futsal […]
Heat dome in the west, hurricanes in the gulf, rivers rising with the northeast rains. Say what you may about science but here’s a picture. Guess which one is Mondays versus Wednesday if you live in Pittsburgh you know. Duke even received a mouth full of water jumping and not realizing how deep the short became with all the leaves.

Here’s a little Fourth of July photo dump. We hopefully have pulled a new generation of river rats into Knee boarding and tubing. Phoebe and Crosby are still good with just trails. They are not yet ready to swim as sisters, Phoebe tried the life jacket and an assisted doggie paddle, but didn’t enjoy the muck. This time they were able to explore the Phillipston portion of the Armstrong trail.
