Lake Lanier "Half Full" or "Half Empty"?

by

Recently we’ve been seeing multiple articles on Lake Lanier water levels and how they may drop to record lows in the coming months.  Stacy Shelton of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution wrote Thursday, October 11, 2007, that state and local officials reported that Lake Lanier has about three months of storage left.

 

Wow, that’s scary. If that doesn’t wake people up now on how important Lake Lanier is to the people that depend on it, I don’t know what will. Up until recently, the main source of concern was coming from Lake Lanier property owners and the Lake Lanier Association. After reading the latest articles, it appears that millions of people in and around Atlanta, plus Alabama could be affected. Isn’t it about time that we, as interested parties in the future of Lake Lanier, find out what we can do to have a say in it’s future.

 

I’m urging my Lake and Home Realty blog readers that know who the decision makers are within the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, to respond with their names, telephone numbers and email addresses so we can share our suggestions and concerns for the welfare of the lake.

 

Eventually, the rains will come, and the lake will start to fill up again. Let’s be proactive now, so we can sustain a “full” lake in the future.

It's Good to be back at our Lake Hartwell Cottage

by

My wife and I just celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary by taking a trip to Charleston, South Carolina for the weekend.

 

We left our Lake Hartwell cottage on Friday, drove about four hours, and spent a couple of days enjoying the sites, history and great food that Charleston has to offer.  We had lunch at Hank’s and dinner at Hyman’s, two of the finest Seafood Restaurants in Charleston.

 

You would think we’d hate leaving such a beautiful city, but to tell you the truth, we couldn’t wait getting back to the lake, picking up our Golden Retriever (Blondie) from Red Creek Kennels, and relaxing down at the dock to watch the sunset.

 

It really makes you appreciate what you have. Even with everything Charleston has to offer, it couldn’t compare to the quiet evenings on the lake, boating to dinner at Weinackers or The Galley, sunsets, and watching our resident Great Blue Heron (we call him “Fraser Crane”) stalking his prey.

 

Thank God for our special Lake Home.
