Lake Norman is down 6.8', Lake Wylie is down 6.7' (from full pond).
We're currently about 16" down for rainfall so far this year.
I've still got good water at my dock on Norman, but it's getting ugly out there.

Corps at Allatoona admitted to releasing more water than they were supposed to. Expectations of more rain than what Georgia received this year. Allatoona was so bad, that in the two weeks we were in Key West for the races it had dropped another two feet. Bass Boats had trouble getting in and out. We couldn't get the Jaguar backed in the water to flush the salt or run the boat prior to making the trip. Word was that Cobb County is close to being out of water. The pipe that supplies the water treatment plant was almost visible a few weeks ago. Good Luck to the Georgia residents there is a chance for Sunday.

A few more.... You'll notice that the top of the dock in the last picture is below the normal full pool level of the lake.

I went out about a month ago and used the only ramp open (Tidwell)
It was freaky riding around and seeing trees sticking up 6-7 feet out of the water in various places
Good thing I was in a jet

Keep the faith. Lake Travis in Austin, TX was 50ft! down from mid 2006 to Jan 2007 and rose 44ft by July 2007.

Sucking...

Esepcially when out of 70 + ramps there are only about 6 left with enough water. They were saying on the news last night that one of the marinas is going to be dry within the next few weeks.
