Anybody got an idea why Rayburn is lower (-3.75), now than the last 3 years? Two hurricanes and plenty of rain. They must have been releasing tons of water.

Hardly any rain in the watershed. It can rain 12" on the lake and it won't come up much. It has to be up the angelina, attoyac, and ayish

Thanks. I noticed driving across the Angelina on 103 this afternoon. It looks pretty dismal. I'll have to chose a ramp, wisely.

I drive over the Angelina River North of the lake twice a day and it is low right now and has been.

During both of those hurricanes we got less than 1 inch of rain total from both of them in Lufkin and Nacogdoches.

We haven't had any significant rainfall in a long while...but it is supposed to rain 3 or 4 days this week.

I heard they let some out before laura but that's just hearsay. Now is the worst time for the lake to rise because with it cooling off if it rises over a foot it will kill all the grass. Granted I like the high water but flipping big jigs in grass is fun

Actually, If you "didn't get" hardly any rain, that means you DID get rain. You've got a form of the double-negative effect going I think. "We hardly got any rain" or "We didn't get any rain" might be more accurate?

It seems to me that they have been letting more out this year, generating power, than they did last year. hmmm

They're doing that on Texoma, too... Trying to compensate for the lost generation of closing all the coal and natural gas plants, I bet!

They had to generate more power because of all the damage Laura done to the power grid in La.

This all seems pretty average to me.
