The lake level is 562.94 and has dropped 7-inches in the last 24-hours with both generators running and 6- flood gates open 1-ft. it is really starting to do some good. Hope they keep it up for a while. We went to Nabatak's open house yesterday and had a good time shopping and enjpying their good food and drinks. They are nice people and we are very fortunate to have them and their business in this community. Their prices and inventory are great. We have good weather for today and tomorrow with highs near 50 and then cold with a chance of snow. Maybe it will be the last of winter. The daffodils are big, the Bradford Pears are budding out and the grass is getting green. This may set that back a bit.  Out normal high is 56. The surface temperature on the lake is 47-48 and the water is clearing nicely. The lake is in good condition for fishing and some good fish are being caught everyday but not a lot.
