Río Sar just outside of Santiago

January 1st 2023. I think we can say that the drought is over.
I’m pleased to see the footbridge stood its ground !! Powerful water.

Btw what is the green box to the left of the bridge on what looks like an old bridge pylon ?

This is the bride we use to cross with our car by the way... a car passed the bridge just after I took the picture...

The box is some sort of water quality measuring device I think. It is on top of a very tall concrete pole that is almost all covered by water.
 
In California we just had a deluge causing massive flooding, mudslides and road damage. Reseroirs filling or filled. But our drought is not over, despite the 200% of normal rainfall just recently. The groundwater has been depleted for years and will take years to get refilled. Much of the water runs off to the ocean. If we have another dry year starting this fall, we're back to drought conditions.
