Lake Day Changes

Today we were able to assess conditions at the lake. The current conditions, a lot of standing water and flooding, combined with the amount of rain expected today & tomorrow (almost 1.5″), and Thursday’s forecast of wind & cool temps along with 50% chance of rain, we do not see any chance for conditions to improve.

We will have movie day at the school and order pizza instead.
