The CORP continues to pull water in an attempt to keep up with inflow and to get the lake down to winter pool. Lake Lanier’s water level is at 1,070.51 or .49 below the normal full pool of 1,071. Lake surface temperatures are hovering around 60 degrees. The main lake and lower lake creeks are slightly stained to stained from recent rains and lake turnover. The upper lake and rivers are stained to muddy from lake turnover and last week’s rain inflow. The Chattahoochee below Buford Dam remains very stained. Check generation schedules before heading out to the river below Buford Dam at 770-945-1466. It’s the time of year for us all to count our blessings. Most people have turmoil in their life and our family is not immune. Sickness, injuries, money problems and other troubles exist for many people. Hard times are when we need God the most. When I count my blessings and they far outweigh my troubles. I am thankful the most for my family and friends and the blessings to be able to do what I love for a living. I wish our readers a very blessed Thanksgiving!
