    Hey Kenny the water dropped a little over a foot last nite. You can almost see the wall from the bridge. Getting closer people, got the boat all ready, and just waiting for the time. Later Andy

    Water is back up about 6 inches, I went and looked at the Yacht club ramp, and it's almost thawed out. Looks as if it's pretty thin Ice, and I'd probably be able to break it up with the boat, it's only about 30 foot to open water. Water temps have got to be coming up some, so it's close fellas. Come on down Matt, but I think 15/16 March would be better. Later Andy

    I'm thinking that with all the snow up north and winter precipitation being high this year there is gonna be a LOT of water coming this way sooner that we want.
