2019 Draw Down - Calling It!

I'm going to call the low for the 2019 draw down at 653.41 feet on March 8th at 11am. I've been fooled before but this level is solidly below the 9 year average of 654.82 and just a bit ahead of the average low date of March 11th, so it's a good bet (I just got back from Vegas) we won't go back down to that level again, especially with the rains we've had this week. It didn't last long so homeowners didn't get much opportunity to take advantage of the extra low levels, but things should stay seasonably low for the next 30 days so there's still a chance to get out to clean the shoreline and do repairs weather permitting, and the weather this weekend is looking pretty decent. Time to get to work!

February 2019 Lake Levels and Flow Rates

Yes, yes, I know, just another monthly lake level post. Let's just say I've been busy and the persistent cold weather has my bad attitude in high gear.

So on the draw down front. Are we there yet? I'd say no, we probably have another week or two before we hit rock bottom, but things are low. Just not as low as they usually get before the draw down is over. I'll post a comparison chart later and see if we can't do a little prognosticating on when we'll reach our maximum low for 2019, but typically it's around March 11th.

Here's the detail graph.

And the candlestick version.
