Drone Footage Of Water Pouring Into Lake Spillway In California

February 22, 2017


These are two drone footage videos of water pouring into the Glory Hole spillway in Lake Berryassa in Napa, California after recent heavy rains. The spillway is capable of draining 48,400 cubic feet of water per second into Putah Creek at the base of the Monticello Dam. Engineering, isn't it amazing? "You aren't going to say anything about glory holes and putas?" No I am not, I'm taking the high road today. And not just because I'm pretty sure I suffered a mild stroke last night, but I do believe God is trying to tell me something, and that something is get your shit together before I lightning bolt you and you don't have time to seek atonement for all your sins. And boy do I have a list of sins to make up for. You know how every year Santa makes a naughty and nice list? Imagine the length of both lists combined. Then imagine every year's list since Santa began Santa-ing all compiled into a single volume. Double that and you've got yourself an idea of what I'm dealing with.

Keep going for the videos, the second of which starts at 1,000 feet then descends into the spillway and almost gets taken by the water.

Thanks to Ty, who agrees it's high time somebody go down that hole in a barrel.
