Rainfall pushes levels on Great Lakes to their highest since 1990s

  1. There’s a rock in Lake Superior out in front of our cabin known by my family as The Big Rock. When I was young, we used to swim out to The Big Rock and stand on it when we’d bathe. We’d lather up and then jump in an rinse off. The rock was a few inches beneath the surface, and when the Lake was wavy, it would emerge from the water between swells. For the past several years, much to my dismay, the water level has been several inches below the rock. This year when I arrived at the cabin, I was astonished to see The Big Rock completely submerged, once again. The amount of precipitation and runoff required to raise the level of the big lake to this degree boggles the mind.

    1. That is certainly welcome news. The fact that we will have to endure another harsh winter in order to keep the water levels ups is a small price to not have a desert instead of a beach.
