Little River is blown out. The basin is tannic and there's no visibility in the cavern. It is possibly siphoning right now and not a good idea to dive. Cow is getting close to being blown out. Peacock is still okay from what I hear. Enjoy your dives.

Just talked to TJ.
prolly do Peacock, then last day ginnie.
(Saw the post on cavediver.net :) about LR and Cow blowouts).

Cool. Just didn't want you to waste a drive to LR to find it blown out. Did you see the photo on CDF? Man, I only wish the water level was always that high without having the tannic intrusion. I hate those steps!

I also saw the update on Cow actually being blown out. I was planning on diving LR and Cow this weekend, but will probably stick to Peacock myself.

Was there in the morning, 2 hours later the "dam broke" so to speak.
Went from Crystal Clear to black :)

Peanut was having a lot a tanic intrusion as well, forget what jump it was (the well) ... was coming up from below and made about 75' of the main line vis about 5'. after that little part, vis cleared right back up.
But we did notice on the way out, a little more current.

27 Feb 2008, 10:30 a.m. - PIII on Wednesday morning... nice and clear...

27 Feb 2008, 12:45 p.m. - PIII on Wednesday afternoon. River intrusion just started... next 2 pictures...


Me, Denies, Mike, Tony and TJ was shooting the pics.

here's a short clip of the vis about 4:30 that day.
Don't recall what part it was, but you can see the tannic color starting to just form. Forgot what tunnel this was (I was leading, so don't recall) :)
3 days of diving, hard to remember --

Thanks for the update. I ended up canceling my motel reservation a couple of days ago. I knew this was coming. I'm going to stay local and dive JB instead.

I tried to view the video, but it wasn't loading for me. Or if it was it's a huge file and I wasn't patient enough.
