Seriously folks, stay off the water

I just returned from scouting the river.

Apparently, someone in a canoe decided it would be a good idea to paddle into the river and snap a few photos. This led to a flurry of SF Search & Rescue folks working to find this individual.

I'm not sure of the specifics, but please do not be foolish and attempt to enter swollen rivers.

UPDATE: The apparent canoeist was actually a couple walking along the bike path.
I did, however, spot two kayakers on the river around 1:30pm. Not smart.

Also - the city is letting raw sewage into the river to relieve some pressure from the system. Just another reason to stay out of the water for a while.
