we need it SO badly. we're getting into a severe drought situation around here, because it hasn't hardly rained this winter, and apparently was pretty dry last winter too. this lake is supposed to have water OVER the dock by this time of the year, with winter rains. this is the river near where i live right now, only this picture was taken last year. it's not uncommon for the water to get up almost to the bridge when it floods. but this was after a big storm last year, and it didn't even flood. now this is what it looks like this year.
