All fish are a golden brown. Needs a tad more salt.

I'd be there tomorrow if I could tow my boat...
mad
Truck is having some body work done, so I am (again) unable to get it out and on the water.

Still considering UHAUL option, and sending the bill to the insurance company for the guy that dented my driver's side while it was parked.

It is on demand power as needed, which probably means only in the peak of summer and maybe some in the winter if it gets cold. I doubt it ran much last winter

Last weekend they had 1 stack running. With this much cooler weather they are probably all off at this point but I am not out there this weekend to verify. This was the time of year last year they took them off line and the lake dropped from the upper 70's to the upper 50's in like 10 days. The fishing was absolutely brutal for a month then got decent.

Water temps two weeks ago were mid 80's, and last weekend were mid 70's, with one stack running. You can catch dinks on the south end, bite up north is really scattered, no frog bite my last two trips.

In September 2011, Luminant announced that, rather than retrofitting, they will shut down Units 1 and 2 to comply with the United States Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) new emission rules.
Was this revoked,..can't find anything about using 3,..?

They have been generating all last week. Several hours a day. My daughter in law is the accountant for them.

They have just about let everyone go but plant still generates when people run A/C more than the heater. On that note Welsh has not done much but pump in new water last few days.

But they are only running one unit, right.? The other two were never retrofitted, the cost was in the billions I read, so they can't run those,..or do they..?
