It's time for pumpkins, sweaters and creepy crawlers! Alas, only the latter you'll find in me.

Spookygage 02379500, here, on the Cartecay River in Georgia. I'm hanging out in my haunted house (complete with suspicious stains) and collecting information on how high the murky yellow-green river behind me rises to help @NWS forecast floods accurately.
I also share my information with emergency managers and local decision makers to help keep citizens safe! Brave hydrotechs from the South Atlantic Water Science Center visit me by crossing my narrow bridge and trying not to fall into the vivid orange spikes below them. The USGS funds me to ensure many more years of sitting here looking haunted.

Happy Halloween to all!
