Default Lake Level

Could not believe how much the lake came up over the past week! I would guess its almost at full lake or maybe 1 below full based on how it looked at my dock today!

Could be up maybe 16" now, looking at my very happy, SEASONAL, old aluminum dock, from last Monday's rainy day .... a whole lotta water! It makes it easier to dip and fill the 2-gal plant sprinkler buckets ...... ho-ho-ho!

All the green plants is still growing .... no 'first freeze' as of yet .... on Nov 4 .... now, considering all this very carefully ....... there is absolutely, positively, absolutely, positively, absolutely no such thing as global warming ...... understand!

Pretty good guess according to the Weirs gauge.

Default Up, Up, and Away

Perhaps the higher water level helped the huge wind-driven waves to move our seasonal wood dock north, stopping against our larger permanent dock at East Bear Island. 🌊

Default wow

We left for FL for a month on 10/21 and the lake was normally low. Crazy increase and nasty weather. We have a generator and video cams so we saw the weather via cam (quite cool). Looks like Moultonboro was out for about 4-5 days-which is very unusual.
Can't say as I'm sorry we missed it

Three rain events (Oct 25th, 26th, 30th) have pushed lake level up about a foot.

Default Evens out?

My prop doesn't know that. It only knows "I was dinged " and blames me. It never praises me when the water is deep, but I catch !@##$$ when it is too shallow. Otherwise, we get along pretty good.

Last year, my final pontoon boat load off the island was a little heavy, causing the boat to stop floating. Won't be an issue this year!
