The pictures above were taken Labor Day weekend. I was going to post them right away but then the wild fires started and after that the lake issue seemed trivial. Now that the fires are over I am back to posting about Lake Conroe. Lake Conroe is a back up water supply for Houston and with the severe drought we have been in they have had to start taking water out of Lake Conroe. It is so sad to see the lake being depleted but at the same time I understand why it has to be done.
If you have followed my blog you know that we are in two active sail boat clubs on the lake. We were out at the lake Labor day weekend and it looked like a ghost lake. Typically you would see several sailboats and a lot of motorboats out on the water. We saw maybe three motorboats, a couple of jet skis and NO sailboats on the lake.
We have a Catalina 22 which is a relatively small sailboat. We have the retractable keel and keep it at Conroe Yacht Club on dry ground. Our friends with the larger boats have had to find creative ways to get their boats off the water.
I expect it is going to be several years before the lake is back to normal. We will miss our sailboat races but in the grand scheme of things people having water to live with is more important.
Please pray for rain in Texas. It is going to take a lot of rain to get us back to normal levels.
