Some Tough Days On The Water

That time of the year when we have slight chances of rain almost every day.  Some days we get it, some days, especially when we don’t expect it….we get it.  Temperatures pretty much in the upper 80s to low 90s into the next weekend.  The following week now looks like mid to upper 90 and chances for rain continue (20-40% chances)

Water has been up and down since the 4th.  Today is the lowest it has been for at least four days when they had it off for a short time in the morning.  We expect the same generation pattern tomorrow that we had today.
