Lakes Are Finally At Power Pools….and rain on the way!

Pretty nice weather for January.  Yesterday was in the high 50s and it is already 55 this morning (8:30 a.m).  Should hit the upper 50s low 60s and tomorrow will also be in the 60s.  Little cool down Saturday into he mid 40s but back into the 50s Sunday and upper 50s by next Tuesday.  The bad news is the rain in the forecast.  We could receive three inches or more.  We certainly need some rain, but not that much all at once.

Both Beaver Lake and Table Rock Lake have been running generators non-stop for weeks.  Beaver Finally shut down their flood gates Monday morning as they were almost at power pool.  Table Rock has been running to keep pace and Table Rock is just about at power pool.  With no more rain coming in, we probably would have seen no or low generation over the coming weekend. I think this just washed down the lake!  Cross our fingers that we get what we need to moisten things up but not fill up the lakes again!

Dana on the water yesterday with George from the Kansas City area.  They had the first day of less than three generators running for weeks.  Started the morning off with two units, then at 7:00 a.m. they turned on three and by 1:00 p.m. it was back to two again.  We, and the fish, prefer to see generation stay stable all day.  Affected fishing a little when it dropped out in the afternoon, but not enough to hurt George’s day.   Good day for him on the cerise San Juan worm and the big ruby.  Also got to strip the filoplume and hook some fish.

How about this for a beautiful sunset?  Just had to stop along the road and grab a shot of it!

Sunset – 1/8/2020
