South Pool Feeding North
The South Pool sits at elevation 1928.3 feet, the highest it's been since the May 2014 flooding event. Two years ago water gushed through the area pictured below.
I shot these pictures this morning. The last time I visited the South Pool this area was dry. Below is the pad area where the city placed pumps to move water when the Equalization Channel was not flowing.
According to a fisherman a rattlesnake was on the pad. I didn't see or hear it. Wearing shorts I did not want to take any chances. Our area has several more rain chances the next two weeks. Pray for rain. Our lakes need it, especially the North Pool which sits nearly thirty feet lower in elevation than a brimming South Pool.
