LAKE LEVEL

I have had a couple of people ask what the lake level is doing. I checked the State data this afternoon and learned that the lake is a
foot LOWER than it was in December. Cutting the folks that manage the lake some slack, I am assuming they want to maintain a cushion of capacity in the lake. At least that, in my innocence, is what I choose to believe……

MORE WINTER

We are looking for about 2.75″ of rain tonight and Friday before it changes to snow. Then, about 10″ on Saturday. The good stuff just keeps coming.

About the camera…. So far, relatively good. I have only had to reset it once, tonight. The disturbing thing is that it functioned without a flaw since 2013 before our current “problems.” I have another camera to install in its place if it fails completely. (If you ever saw the movie, “2001,) you will remember, “Leave it in place, and let it fail…”) Again, if you saw the movie, you know what happened then. Ugg. So, I hope things just stay simple and reliable.

One more thing. Most of the lake has an ice layer. The area toward Mill Creek is still open, and a forecast for rain will not produce more ice. And next week we will have cold nights, but warm days. That could complete the freezing process, but it would not inspire MY confidence. Be careful out there…..

DEAD CAMERA, PART 3, AND MORE….

The news is not good. The camera arrived, and was installed, and is not compatible with this website. It has to be returned, and another ordered. All said, probably 10 – 14 days from today, 1-9. Sorry, folks….

The lake managed to finally freeze over on Friday. Today it has snowed a few inches. That makes the lake LOOK like you can get on it. No way! There could not be more than an inch of ice right now. Maybe if the real cold continues for another couple of weeks, it might be safe. Personally, I would never trust it.

DEAD CAMERA, PART 2

Just an update. I ordered the camera a week ago, and it is yet to ship. When it does, I have paid for 2 day shipping. I hope no one turns blue from not breathing. A surprising number of people asked me about it at the Snowdrifters meeting on Saturday. I hear you guys. I want it as bad as you do……
