I don't usually like to use an emoji but this thread has gone on for so long, looking at all the text gets boring. Also gives me a starting point if I have to step away.

Watching the dam cam, I see something I think is different. Although the plumes/spray of water from the MS are much smaller than when they recently re-opened the MS, the water spray is now at the tower-and sometimes a bit to the right of the tower. Before, the plumes and spray were to the left of the tower, further down the spillway.

Thanks for finding and posting this. Am I crazy -- I do not see any part of the bottom half of the MS. There's the break up top and the rest looks to be all rocks from there down.

Just found it a while ago. I did expect the end of the spillway tip to break more but it seems to hold still.

You are right about it looking like the concrete has been chugged of.

Erosion front is steady gnawing it's way to the top of the MS. When they shutdown the MS again for "repairs", it will be a gruesome prospect.

The snow melt just keeps on coming...

No, the spray isn't disappeared, it's just not enough flow to make it big enough to see from the lake cam.

I did, you can still see the bottom of the MS. His angle is poor for viewing the bottom of the spillway. But if you look close enough, you can make it out through the tress.
