21 March 2015: Regular water level measurements resumed

IMG_20150321_130019.jpgToday I took a walk down to the lake and noticed that melting snow had exposed a small section of ice on the shore so I got a shovel and dug down through 3′ of drifted snow to uncover my bench mark and made the first accurate water level measurement since the end of January. The lake level is currently at -54.65″ below the top of the dam, about 1/2 a foot lower than I had estimated it to be a couple of weeks ago and 8.57″ lower than it was on January 31st when I last measured it.
