Independence weekend

Everyone have a great and safe 4th this year!

A lot of crazies out this weekend.

Already saw them tonight while towing my daughter on the knee board. A gentleman in a Cobalt that was way more interested in the tubes behind him than the water in front of him. We packed it in for the evening.

There is a governor ordered no wake on LOTO right now because of all the rain. The dam for the lake is used to generate electricity for the St. Louis metro area. The turbines have a capacity to the flow rate per minute so the flood gates have been opened. The lake is open to boat traffic but idle speed must be maintained. This could be a major blow to the area economically if the lake is not opened to normal boat traffic soon. Word is maybe some time on Saturday the lake will be down enough.

wow not getting hammered by big cruisers on loto! that would be strange. my kids and ex should have just got to osage beach to spend time with their grandparents. they don't have a boat up there so the putt putt places should be packed!

most of the lakes in my area with the exception of Skiatook lake are really high. we were 18 ft low earlier this spring and are not sitting at 2 ft low. should make a very busy weekend. heading out tomorrow hoping is slower that Saturday.

ps, the pic of that g-series is sad.
