My lake is once again too shallow to launch my boat and the City won't do a damn thing to dig the channel again. Great! Get to carry my boat to the next nearest lake deep enough which is 45 minutes away and the lake sucks for any slalom sets! GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I thought that Florida had been getting a lot of rain?

South FL gets more. We get a little shower for 10 minutes and thats it. The rain we do get cannot keep up with the lakes drying up. Our lake has dropped 1.5 feet in 4 weeks.

I love living on a lake that I cannot use... The ramp is run by the city and the lazy and cheap POS's will not fix the one side of the ramp where the sand has gotten 3 feet deep on the ramp and you get suck as soon as you load your boat. (Been there, Done that!) other side is too shallow to even walk your boat into the "channel" which is now only 1.8 feet deep till you get 600ft out.

Man so sorry to hear that. I wish I could give you some of the water from the NE. I have too much water the ramps are flooded. You can't see them and the truck would be way to far in the water to get to the steep of the ramp. Sucks big time!

We can't touch the ramp or sand, it's the city deal and I would get a fine! Go figure... (insert non existed rolleyes smilie)
