Richland Chambers Lake Level, the day after Thanksgiving 2013

Our boathouse is not the prettiest sight right now, however the water under it is a sight for sore eyes.  Today Richland Chambers is Lake at 307.79 which is 7.21 feet low, up from 304.74 on October 12, 2013, 10.26 feet low.  Three feet gained in a little over 6 weeks.  The low mark this year was the 2nd lowest the lake has been in its 24 year history.  The recent rains have now saturated the ground, filled ditches, tanks and streams and closed up all the cracks.  We have rain again in the forecast for next Thursday and Friday and we are hoping for significant amounts.  Historic graphs show the lake fills between now and the month of  March - first of April or so.  Check out the lake level at  When the lake fills we will have 8.5 ft of water under the boathouse and it will look much better.
