Getting Stumped

Fall is the time of year when the water level in Powell Lake is at its lowest. That's because there's little rain over the summer, and power generation at the dam sucks away quite a bit.  Fortunately, because our float cabin is in about 90 feet of water, we are safe from going aground. The up side to the dry season is that,many submerged stumps emerge to provide a more "decorative" shoreline.

Now that the rain has arrived in earnest, everything will look a whole lot different when I get back home. -- Margy

  7. Thanks everyone for stopping by and commenting on my Weekend Reflections post. With all the rain we've had in the last few weeks, the lake has gone way up. No more artistic stumps until next fall. - Margy
