Everything has a history. I'm a historian. This blog is about the threads of history that I perceive in the world around me. I welcome any comments that bring light to the subject at hand.
I love the time lapse but I wonder how this compares to a flood on the river with sediment coverage downstream. Amazing how much mud and debris was backed up behind the dam. Makes you wonder how much is locked up behind dam's on the Columbia.
For sure. On the Columbia there will also be industrial, radiological, and chemical (pesticide & herbicide) wastes in the sediment. Seems like breaching one of those dams would send a giant slug of concentrated poison down the river. Ick.
