    Low water and rain at Folsom Lake

    I think it's fairly safe to say our season is over. The big storm we got yesterday caused the water level in the lake to go up 1 inch, we only need it to go up 110 more before it is full again. That's only 1,320 storms.

    You never know. The way things are going back East it's possible the same thing could happen here.

    That's crazy how much farther does it need to get to come back to "Normal"??

    I would say another 40' would be normal for this time of year.....another 82' before it is full. Remember the higher it gets the bigger the surface area and the slower it fills. Right now its at 280,000 acre feet, 1,000,000 full.

    We can launch a boat now that it has risen. It needs to go up another 17' before they lift the 5 m.p.h. speed limit.
