And the rain goes on

We have received a record amount of rainfall here at Mountain Lake these past couple months! In May alone, we received approximately 10" of rain! We have been monitoring the lake level too. On June 4th, the lake was 36' below full pond whereas on April 30, the lake was 43' below full pond. That means our lake has risen around 7' in 5 weeks, averaging 1 foot per week! Below are some photos I took this morning.

Only 10 more feet and our pontoon may float!
