    I talked to the Corps of Engineers today, they said that they are pulling 50 cubic feet of water a second to compicate for inflow. If they dont shut it off soon the north end of the lake will be tough to navigate. I have a flatbottom boat and 30 horse MudBuddy and its a little sticky for me to cross the flat east of 240th street as of last weekend!!!!

    There is going to be alot of water entering the lake after this rain storm. I don't know what we've had this afternoon but it has been a lot. Things will be in the rise again. :sad2:
