Crowds flocked to Monticello Dam to get a glimpse of the Glory Hole last weekend, as Lake Berryessa rose to less than a foot below the rim, as seen here around 4 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 12.

Back in October, when Lake Berryessa was at its lowest point in years, compounded by lingering drought in California, no one expected that enough rain could fall to bring the lake high enough to get anywhere near the top of the Glory Hole spillway.
And then it did.
Soaking storms in December and January began steadily filling the lake, which hit its low point on Oct. 23 of last year at 855,434 acre-feet, with an elevation of 398.59 feet — 41.41 feet below the glory hole spillway, says Roland Sanford, general Manager for the Solano County Water Agency, which controls the movement of water from the lake to Putah Creek. . . .

Girls ready for playoffs

Express sports

You have to beat the best to be the best and that’s what the Winters High School girls soccer team will have to do if they want to four peat as section champions this year.
Once again, the Warriors got the raw end of the deal when it comes to seeding but they have overcome it before and they can do it again.
Winters will host Willows on Thursday, Feb. 16, as the number three seed behind number one University Prep and number two Williams.
The Warriors will match up with Williams in round two if both teams win their first game but that game would be played in Williams.
“Yes, we got tripped up again with the Section’s ‘head to head’ rule,” said coach Jerry Evanoff. . . .
