    We are up to around 10” in the last couple weeks. Anyone that needs any rain let me know. Prices are cheap, just got to make sure the shipping does not get you.

    Looks like we are making the news again!

    There are several more articles about that if anyone wants to google. There are several houses below the dam. It is a shame if she lets go. I feel sorry for the people it will affect.

    Thanks! Maybe it will miss everyone’s house and someone will decide it actually needs to be fixed! That is what I am hoping for. I am thinking it was built as a flood control lake, but have no proof of that. If anyone knows a database of where to look at the old gov. built flood control lakes I would sure like to know.

    I've seen depression era work program dams that had a plaque on them that gave the info on when/why they were built.
