Conn Dam spillway.

We've gotten some very good rain this season (including about 10+ inches over the last week or so) enough that the spillway at Conn Dam is running strong. The overflow hits a concrete barrier at the foot of the spillway and creates a kind of boiling mushroom of water. It used to be an almost yearly occurrence when I was a kid back in the 60's-70's, but the last time it occurred was back in 2005. Conn Dam creates Lake Hennessy, which sits in the hills on the eastern side of the Napa Valley just east of Rutherford.

This gives you an idea of how the spillway sits in relation to everything else:

This link goes to a video of the spillway that someone posted to fb a couple of days ago. Worth a look (37 seconds).
