Last year around this time we were in the midst of a severe drought. We are still in a drought but the good Lord has blessed us with some much needed rain. We have a lake about 50 miles from here and it had gone from 99 feet deep to around 33 feet because of the drought, Since the first of the year we have had over 5″ of rain and today we received almost 2 more inches. The weather men here said that Lake Meredith has risen about 5′, it is now at about 48 feet so all the little rains and this one has made a big dent in the drought. We also have two more smaller lakes that have risen about 9′.
