I will be helping Russell Doit economy.  Have to finish my sea wall repair that got caught with all that rain we had early year.  And The Landing has closed for the fall.

I'm with lakengulf.  I've got plenty of water to put my boat in at winter pool level; it's going to take me a month to clean out all the trees, limbs and debri that came in my slough during last Christmas rains; my wife is a great cook (for two only, don't get any ideas about being invited for plantation supper) so we don't eat out on the lake; if you need to extend your lawn irrigation system, go buy another piece of 1-1/4" pipe, 2 couplings and add it on to your existing system (cleaner water the deeper you go), takes about an hour.

Many do not have enough water to use their boats when water level is down - don't forget them!

I have not forgotten about the folks who cannot use their boats during normal winter levels.  This lake has been rising and falling for nearly 100 years .  There are levels which the power company is supposed to abide by depending on the weather conditions.  January we were nearly 8' above rule; never hit full pool; then the first of September til now we have been right at 3' below rule.  Over my 50 years on this lake I have seen droughts and floods.  I've had boats beached and I've had boats hung up under piers.  And yes, this year I will have enough water to float my boat, hopefully.

Please don't take me wrong, I have neighbors who cannot get their boat out now and I feel for them.  My suggestion is to go out and enjoy the water you have.  Join LMRA or HOBO and try to keep the Corps of Engineers and Atlanta from taking another 2' of our water.  Florida and Georgia are going to trial on Oct.31.  As The Newnan Times-Herald reports "The trial marks a significant milestone in the decades-long fight between the states of Florida, Georgia and sometimes Alabama."  "... sometimes Alabama" worries me.  Get involved, keep what levels we have and enjoy them while the weather is nice outside.
