For some reason I have been fascinated over the last year with the water level of lake Travis.
I believe it was sometime in June when it was announced that all businesses on Lake Travis would be shutting their doors due to the low water level.
On September 28th, 2009 the water level reached it’s lowest of the year. It was 52.24 feet below full pool. That is really, really low.
Here is a picture of the lake on that day.
With October came rain, lots of rain. The problem being the ground was so dry that it absorb much of that rain and the lake barely rose.
Luckily the rain continued into November and the lake began to rise. Then a rainy December came. Then a rainy January. Then a rainy February and March.
A couple of days ago after months and months of unusual heavy rain the lake reach full pool.
Here is a photo of it.
This year all the local douchebags will get to reach their full douchebaggery potential on a nice full and beautiful lake. Shiner Bock and Michelob Ultra will be flying off the grocery store shelves as all the bros and hoes gear up for summer days on the water, rotating two songs. Jason Mraz “I’m yours” and The Lonely Island’s “I’m on a boat”.
