I've been up a couple of times this winter.
It was too windy to comfortably fly over the water, but I did manage to shoot this:

It's now up and running!
We're also a reporting station for both the National Weather Service and Weather Underground.
While my idea, the station was funded by Friends of Blackrock, an organization I've been involved with for the last umpteen years.
Click on the FBR Mountain Lion logo on the left side of the page and take advantage of our many web resources.... and maybe even consider joining us!

There are some photos floating around on FB from an overflight on Sat (5/13).
They show a pretty significant drop in water level.
We plan on camping at playa edge the next two weekends. I'll do a comparison.
For discussion sake, the Black Rock Rendezvous couldn't be held on the playa two years ago because of inundation, so this isn't the first time it's been wet going into June.
