There is simply nothing we or anyone else could do to prevent a major flood when we have massive rains like this. Let’s remember that we got 3.5 inches of rain — that’s a normal monthly total — in just 12 hours.
Also, PLEASE, if you are on the lake, go slowly so as to not make waves on the shore. I have talked with the state parks and recreation person in charge of the Canadarago Lake Boat Launch and requested that the launch be closed due to the high water. Please be safe during this very trying time.
