No place to go but up?

Now that the wet season has begun …

We can expect Lake O to steadily rise, right?

Will Lake O drop into "single digits" in June?

Not so fast!

Record dry down years of 2001, 2007 and 2008 continued their decline (or stayed repressed) through the entirety of June. Lake stage rebounded dramatically in the summers of 2001 and 2008, rising over 5 feet by fall, but 2007 stayed stuck below 10.5 feet above sea level all year long.


What will this summer hold?

That’s the great thing about the water cycle:

You never know until it happens, followed by everyone jumping out of the hydrologic wood work saying “I told you so.”

So is the "wet season" just a title any more?
