Dam!

This is how bad it is: the lake looked pretty full to us, compared to how we remembered it. But looking across the water at the dam, it was clear that it was still very low, a detail confirmed by my favorite lake-monitoring website: this poor little lake is at only 11.5% of capacity.

PS. I know it’s weird to have any kind of a lake-monitoring website, let alone a favorite one.

Lakeshore (water down)

In event the water ever rises in this lake, the little spit of land I was standing on will be under water. But the lake’s been down for as long as I can remember, so I didn’t even pack a wetsuit.
