First comment yay!!! lol.Did you say 8 feet? My that is a lot of water to be down. Really puts it into perspective doesn't it? It looks very pretty I'll bet it is lovely when it is full.
Wow... so sad. Our lakes looked like that several years ago when we had a drought here. Thankfully, they've all come back up (for the most part) and people are able to use their boats again!
Having lived through several savage droughts this truly makes my heart twist for you.You know what I'm going to say next...."Send 'er down Hughie!"xx's
Those shots really show what the lose of 8` of water looks like. Any hope for rain in the near future?
Wow - those are amazing photos. My niece has friends who own a lake house in Texas (not sure where), and she has told me how bad the situation is. Still praying for rain for your area.....
looks the same here.... keep raining!!!!!
I sure hope you get some good rain this winter. We've been having a fairly dry fall, well except on the days we planned to go to the Covered Bridge Festival over in Indiana. But, we are not as bad off as you guys.
So little water...Now its time for you to get a real rainweather!
That is a lot of rainfall to be short of! Wow! We might well be faced with a similar situation at the end of our summer, since our winter rains this year fell short of the annual averages. With global warming, we are told this might be our future. I'm hoping you get some worthwhile downpours, soon!
Wow! That's is dry. Well, I can still bring an intertube. You guys need to have a rain dance.
these make your drought horrific. seeing is believing, it is one thing to know and here about your lack of rain, but this shows the for real look. very sad. and if the lakes look like this i can only imagine what the land is like. we have seen the dry cracked soil on TV
unfortunately you see alot of that around here....
Are kids going out there with metal detectors? It was quite the event here a few years ago when one of ours got dried up.
Yes..we drove across the bridge at Onalaska at Lake Livingston last week and saw pretty much the same sights. Terrible.
Hopefully that lake doesn't supply water to a community. One of our small towns around here is in danger of losing it's water supply due to loss of water in Pinkston Lake (which most people are calling Pinkston Pond these days).
Oh my... all docked up and no where to go!Is this drought a historically reoccurring event or a one-off?
Wow, that is a very LOW water level!
We actually walked along the dry lake bed of Lake Travis on Sunday. So sad!
Oh my - 8 feet is a huge drop. I keep praying for rain for you!
Yikes! I really hate to see that . . . I sure hope this trend turns around.
Wow...my heart aches to see this!
Gasp!!!! Oh my word, I can't believe it! I'll do a little rain dance for you!
Hi and dry :-(It's hard to imagine this much water loss.
Hopefully we will get rain this winter! We got a little Saturday night over night. Didn't do anything for the pond but the plants loved it I am sure.
You know you are in trouble when marine managers say things like, "Gotta mow the grass under the dock again". The situation is beyond tragic for an area that manages bass fishing as a resource. Praying for the turn around.
So drastic and sad!
That's awful! Don't give up the rain dancing. :)
Wow! These photos really illustrate the effects of the drought. Is this the lake that supplies your water?
It is awful! Hopefully we will get a bit more rain tomorrow night!What we need is a good soaking for a couple of weeks!
Oh my. That is incredible. I wish rain on Texas, T! What a spooky sight!
Hope you guys get lots of much needed water some time soon!
OH, T..how awful.That is incredibly low.
This drought is unprecedented. The worst ever on record and the forecasters are saying it may last well into next year. All the lakes around here are way down also. I don't think there's a single dock on a single lake that is still in water.
Hi Teresa..Looks like you could use more than a few showers there..
That is such a sad sight. It's the same around here. The scary thing is many of the folks here are losing their water wells- house wells and irrigation. We lost ours and had to drill over 500feet to find enough water-others haven't been so "lucky". At over $30.00 a foot it's quite pricey! The old timers here are saying water will soon be more expensive than oil...
Oh gosh, that gives you some scary perspective on how bad the drought is. Yikes.
Great photos on how bad the situation is down there. And up here, my yard is so soggy all fall from the rains.
I was thinking the same as Lisa, I would be out with a metal detector. Sending positive rain thoughts.
I can say it sure does look like a dry dock. I am hoping some rain your way. sandie
That is a sad sight. I do hope that you get the needed rain over the winter.
How dry is that! Unbelieiveable!
Wow that is amazing.....kind of like our glacier pictures and how far back they are....
I'm shaking my head in disbelief. And, we think that we are the masters of the universe. Seems to me, sometimes, that Mother Earth is on a campaign to prove us wrong.
Wow, how sad is that? Well, I guess it is a good time to repair hulls and get the boat in tip top shape.
Hopefully this winter... will more than make up for this drought! Wish we could have a glacier flown in and parked in the middle of TEX, it would melt so fast and fill up those thristy lakes and rivers!
That is a lot! I think about all the beer cans and bottles, lost fishing poles, boat motors, bodies that were revealed by the receeding water.
Oh Wow your photos make me realize just how hard this drought has been on everyone. I being a farmer was only thinking of the livestock and farmers. This has to be very frustrating and worrisome for the people that have to endure the loss of there water. A very different perspective for us that do not know. Thanks for sharing. B
That really shows how low things are ...... Sending rain vibes your way!
That is as eager as you, waiting for a raining season.
LOL I totally saw stuff like this out at lake travis the other weekend when driving. Its so crazy!
That is sad to see the lake so low that it stops all the boating and the mooring site are so far out of water. Excellent documentation of this situation.
These photos tell the real story don't they. Your pond and this lake, so sad. Here's to praying for rain.....
Oh My GOSH Tex! That is shocking and sad. That one boat tied up, bottom sitting on the grass, have to wonder how hard that will be on the bottom hull. At first when I looked at it, how you framed the shot looked like it was hanging out over the ramp-spooky. All those boats, at least they are on lifts. I am praying for water for you, and I mean I am pulling out my rosary tonight! Your pond needs water too and your trees and all your property! And we are whining here in our little bit of country for being short 4 inches.
Good grief! That is really low. I hope you get more rain soon.
I think there's a new song out called Where Has All the Water Gone? Or was that Flowers??? Oh, well, no water, no flowers! Amazing! Sylvia
I was going to mention Lake Travis near where my daughters live but I see a couple of people already have. So sad. Would like to drive over to Medina Lake someday to check it out. I'm sure it is very low.
Oh, my goodness. Yikes that's low. Hope this drought doesn't last as long as they're predicting!
Oh MY GOODNESS!That's unreal! And sad.
Although we've had rain lately. Overall it's relly not that much!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.
How low can ya go! Hoping winter brings some rain your way!
Yikes! Right, at least when "our" Lake here in Oregon goes down, it is planned and expected. Yours being empty is scary.
T, oh my, Hard to believe an expensive boat like that sitting high and dry. Obviously the owner doesn't care much about it!
all along we've understood how dry and horrible it has been in Texas, but I think these pictures paint the clearest picture of just how drastic it has been! Wow!
silver lining? As my husband just said when I showed him the picture. "Well, its an ideal time to do any dock repairs."
oh no, i really didn't expect to see that.so sad...
Chyba najwyższa pora, żeby spadł deszcz. Szkoda, że nie można mu dać rozkazu - padaj !. Pozdrawiam
Incredible!When we went through a severe drought a few years ago, the state of Georgia was hit even harder. Tennessee had to sell water to Ga. Isn't that the strangest thing!?I hope soon you get a break. Texas needs it so bad!xo, misha
yikes...talk about high and dry. i have never seen anything like that. it's so very sad!!
Oooh...that's terrible! Any moisture predicted?
My heart goes out to all who are drought ridden. I can only imagine the animals sold for lack of food etc. 'love & hugs from afar'
Shame, that lake is down 8ft. What does it look, when its at higher level?
Oh my you have an eye for details.....I totally missed that bright yellow leaf by George and it sticks out like a sore thumb.....thanks for sending me back for a second look!
That looks bad, I keep thinking about the dust bowl... hope nothing like that happens!
WOW! That's the worst I've ever seen it. My other TX friends are singing the same song!
Adds new meaning to the phrase. Just awful. Come on rainstorms!!! XO, Margie
That is a lot of water to be missing. Dry dock, it is.
It's a sorry sight...
That is so sad! I hope you get some good rain soon. Not too much this time, just enough to replenish.
Oh, man! Those are some dramatic pictures. Still hoping you all get the right amount of rain one of these days.
Some of the farmland around my way kind of looked like this after all the rain we had recieved. Now these lakes will turn to ice soon, and then a whole new set of images will be taken. Richard from Amish Stories.
After so many flooding pictures in Nebraska this spring and summer, this actually doesn't look too bad. But it's a sad case either way.
Now that is pretty severe. How long till you can expect some rain again?
How incredibly unfortunate. Eight feet below normal is a sad situation. Hope the next several months will make some changes for the better.
That is a sad sight. Come on rain!!
wow, it's amazing that one part of our country can be suffering from drought and just a short plane ride away another part can be overflowing!
Well, I guess if we try to put a positive spin on it... they can do any needed repair work! Ugh:@)
Wow, that is just amazing. Droughts are just horrible, I hope you get some much needed rain soon.
wow, that's pretty serious. hope texas recovers from its crazy, dry summer with a cool, wet fall.
Wow, that's aweful. I sure hope you get some much-needed rain this fall.
How sad that the lake has dried up so much.
whoa, that is striking. and serious. I've been thinking about you guys and wondering if there had been any improvement. now I know. maybe you'll get some rain from the hurricane that's approaching Mexico. hope so. happy week to you TWG.
That is just so sad to see. To put a good twist to it it would be a good time for the people with the docks to do any repairs that need to be done to it with the water not being there. And they could build new ones they've been wanting to build. Hopefully the water will come back real soon. I sure hope so!
Oh wow, can you say Hi and Dry? It doesn't look like there will be any boating for awhile.
Wow! That is BAD!
Are you sure the zombies haven't invaded Texas and sucked up all your water? That's dry girl! DRY!
Yikes! We drove over Lake Lavon the other day and I wanted Mike to pull over so I could snap some photos but he was worried about traffic or some such. Nov. 1 we go on stage 3 water restrictions...only water once every 2 weeks. =(
I'M 100!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! no, not years...your 100th comment...so i better make it worth your while!!damn!! that's dry. i've seen lakes like that when we drive through georgia. boats and docks...sitting in the middle of NOTHING. sad...i hope it gets better soon...but it's gonna take a helluva lot of rain to get things back to even near normal... :(
Hey I'm 101!!! Ohhh those are some telling photos. How sad.... wishing you a wet winter!!
Wow! Talk about low water level! That last shot says it all! I guess the upside is it would be easy to clean the outside of the boat. Something tells me if they wait for the water level to come back up to float that thing, they're in for a long wait.
Oh my...that lake has turned into a pond.
Oh, MY! That is really down.
