I shared the sad photo above with you back in early September. The poor lake at Roundrock had been shrinking throughout the hot, dry summer. The area you see above should normally be about ten feet deep. Sad.
On my most recent visit to the woods, less than two weeks ago, that same scene looked like this:
That’s an improvement, and I’d like to think that my application of Bentonite last summer has helped, but it’s still barely knee deep here. I’m not complaining, of course, but I worry that the lake won’t be deep enuf to overwinter the fish that are in it.
I watch the weather reports through the week, hoping to see rain move into the Roundrock area, but it’s been dismal in recent months.
I once had someone ask me if I had filled the lake from a hose. I wish I could do that now.
