Sunrise 6:49 am: More water for the ducks

The Dawn Joggers hit the top of the stairs at Lake Lagunita this morning and saw less a lake and more a pond. The outlook was not good for a spring crop of ducklings. But a short jog down the lake's western bank revealed that new water was flowing into the lake.

There are a number of dams, lakes, reservoirs, deep wells and pump stations spread across Stanford land. According to a university official, Lake Lagunita is only filled if San Francisquito Creek flows are available and after Felt Lake is completely full. And it usually is filled only for spring quarter.

Yes, it was still chilly this morning - around 40, up from the the high 30s of the past few days.
