My neighbour has less than a foot of water in her boathouse and it used to be over my head :-[

Must be the bottling plants taking all the water, Geez, EVERYWHERE else I see on TV is being hit with flooding!!??
You must be on wolfe island. We are right accross the way in cape vincent. 2 weeks ago there was 8" at the end of our dock, its usually 4-5 feet! We better get some snow real quick or we are all done for next year! My brother in law had trouble getting his boat on at the ramp in october and its gone way down since then!

YEP!! We are on the South shore of Wolfe Island, straight across from Millens Bay, near the East end of Carlton Island, there is a big red channel marker at the mouth of our Bay (Murry Bay)

Water is CRAZY low! I may do some more dredging, but, it's pointless to dredge in front of my place if the water is too shallow elsewhere to get out to the river. Sure hope we get snow, rain does nothing, we need snow, and LOTS of it!

Cape Vincent is awesome, used to go to Captain Jacks years ago, now we take the ferry at Hornes point and go to the Antique Museum in Clayton, and always go to the French Festival at the Cape, good hearing from ya! Neighbour!

Default crazy low...

That's what's good about the ocean. It might rot my motor until it looks like a crack heads teeth......but at least the water levels are consistent.....some of the time.

Too bad most of the snow in the GL region is lake effect, formed by the evaporation of water from the lakes....not sure how that is going to help

I will agree, the water level in the NE has been bad the second half of '12, but let us not forget that in the spring of 2011 they had many local lakes and canals closed because the water level was too HIGH!

The SE and middle the of the country is a different story, some of you are approaching a decade of drought....which makes us in the NE complaining about the second half of our '12 season seem petty

We need a hard freeze on the big lakes with snow on top other wise everything evaporates and goes elsewhere.
