Wow!!! Talk about a torrential down pour the past 2 1/2 days!! I kept looking out my street waiting to see a large wooden boat full of animals in pairs float by!! :eek:

Friday afternoon I drove down the docks of our lake and the water level was about 3 feet below the summer water line. Drove past the lake today and it's ABOVE the summer water line!! The lake went up greater than 3 feet in 2 days!!!!

For you math guys, how many gallons would that be??? 150 acre lake, up 3 feet. :eek:

A bunch! The lakes here in Indy are still at full summer level, which I don't understand either.


Also lot of rain and lightning here also. House in neighborhood next to us got hit and caught on fire at 1AM this morning. Was quiet a show!

Are you a math teacher or something, or just EXTREMELY good with numbers?
