Let it rain!
When we originally signed the contract on our house in July of 2005, the lake looked like - well, a lake. The water came up to the boat dock the way it should, and we had no beach at all.

By the time we actually moved into our house in December, 2005, we had 100 feet of beach!

Lakes are measured in surface acre feet. Last March (2005), Tawakoni held 900,000 surface acre feet of water. Today, it holds 600,000. While it's really nice to have a beach to walk on and run Jonah on, it would be nicer to have the water!

Needless to say, when we hear that we may get rain, we're thrilled beyond belief! Last weekend, we got 4" of rain (or so I'm told), but the ground is so dry that it did nothing for the lake, although it did get the burn ban lifted.

It's raining today and I'm begging, pleading, and bargaining with the weather gods to bring it on and dump as much on us as possible!! The weather is supposed to be really cold this weekend (February in Dallas is always nasty) so let it rain!!
