Somebody close the door, it's cold out! Gage 14120000 here on the Hood River at Tucker Bridge in Oregon. I'm cooperatively funded by the @usgs Oregon Water Science Center and @bonnevillepower. Measurements go as far back as 1898 (a total of 24 measurements conducted from 1898-1965) and were most likely estimated from the previous bridge that was located just upstream of the current one. My data is used in conjunction with a @nws rain gage to estimate weather systems as well as predict potential flooding. Exiting into the Columbia River, this stretch of Hood River is very popular for kayak/rafting and a great swimming hole under the bridge during the summer months!
