Capt'n Rob keep looking for a wireless cam....today would have been QUITE A SHOW !!!
The white caps are about 4 or more feet with water coming over the six foot seawall.
Winds are CRAZY strong...but it's really kinda kewl too coz now the sun is out !
Very awesome to see and anyone who doesn't respect this lake...is just nutzo !
Wish a pic would capture it, but it never gives full effect. Plus by the time I uploaded it...
it would be july 2010 hehe.
Wish you all could see this...its wayyyyyyy kewl !!!

Hopefully mother nature will get it all out of her system before friday and ya'll

lol stodge....hope it never comes to that but I'll tell ya..this is pretty impressive.
the winds are projected at 40 mph...but..holy smokes...that wind would blow a small person away.
coming right off the bay with nothing to stop it....its impressive !

Shor...you be CAREFUL out there. Take nothing for granted. Or, better yet...stay at port for a couple more days till this is over !

when you're Newbie sized the 1 footers look big.

Four to seven footers today on LSC... You might bottom out!!



Bills insurance company is sweating right now after reading this thread


But Blaz is smiling


I cant wait to get home and see how much our canal has dropped since this morning. Like I said, it was down about 4" from yesterday when I left for work this morning.

If you're looking for your water it's all in my canal.

If my wife wasn't making cinnamon coffee cake I'd be in.

That is the wide open lake at the end of my canal.

When I was a kid, 13- 14 years old, I saved all my lawn cutting money and bought a 12' Sunfish sailboat. I would live for lake conditions like today.

My dad's only response was "I am not coming to get you." He would worry the entire time and watch from the corner. I always made it back after dumping it several times. That was half the fun.

I like cinnamon


I have to tell you...there are two guys...one in a swim suit..bare chest and another in jeans and a sweatshirt...they are two lots away....
They have two jet skis tethered in the water.
No way they wouldn't get loose and beat up badly....

so I can only guess that they tossed a coin as to who would go in to get them ....

coz one was cracking up and taking pictures...the other was shivering.

we were out...get home to see this craziness...everything blowing everywhere.

I say to hub..."Oh No !!! one of my planters blew over"
He's like "ok..no big deal..I'll get it in a few" (no urgency in his voice)
Then..I'm like.."OMG !! the gazebo is about to blow over"
Same response from hubby


then he happens to actually look out and he goes...

"HEY THE TOP OF MY DECK BOX BLEW OFF!!!!" (urgency aplenty now)

So...out he goes...as fast as that...and u guessed it...right to the dock box...


But to his credit...he did also take down the canvas gazebo top and managed not to let it or
himself get blown away in the process.
Hence, the hot coffee


but...ummm.....my planter ?? it's still on it's side


Guys...u gotta love em.

coz..u can't kill em !
