Entergy Hydro started lowering their lakes Thursday. They've lowered ours 2 foot. We wasn't home when Gustav came through and it blew a foot of rain water in my boat. Took hour and half for the bilge to pump out. I have it raised higher this time. We have family near Beaumont, TX that had planned to ride Ike out but Friday morning at 2 AM they changed their minds and headed for higher ground. They had just got back from evacuating for Gustav, also they lost everything but their life during Katrina in 2005.
