Post Just a little concerned

I'm a little concerned about the water levels
on Lakes Erie & St. Clair this year. I just measured my seawall and guess what? Lake Erie water levels have dropped 54" since I moved to the water in 1997.
What am I to do? I don't want to risk hitting a rock this year. Last year, first time out in the new boat, I hit something.
My question is for you Lake Michigan guys.
Can someone give me advice on a marina that "rack stores" near St. Joseph,MI.

We are in a severe drought here in the North East. Gov. Pattaki of NY is setting up a drought task force to manage the situation. Last I heard in Oct. we were 15" below normal in rain totals. Now with the lack of snow this winter things are getting worse.

I think everyone in Michigan is concerned about water levels! I not a big winter fan, but I do wish we would get dumped on and I hope the spring rains are above normal!!

our lake here in 2000 was down 5 feet,the avarage depth with normal pool was 15,there was land showing in a lot of places ,the bad thing was when they built it they cut all the trees at 3 feet from the ground,there was a lot of stumps.
