    My parents built a cottage two miles west of Port Austin in 1945 i think. WE lived in Bad Axe and had it for so many years….. as it was close. Spent most of our summer months there, and have seen so many water levels high and lows…….. hard for a person who does not know the lakes to see or know what the lake can do. High levels of the 80’s or so took down a lot of trees that had been there forever.. and many homes were in danger. we all were back from the shore but it sure seemed it was taking away the beach at a fast rate coming towards the front of our cottage. In the late 60’s the lake was so low you could not get you boat out and in . We sold the cottage in the early 90’s . Best days of our lives. Miss it and Huron county.

      Thanks Ken…I was a little kid in the early 60’s so I dont recall Saginaw Bay being that low. I was told that folks were able to drive their cars out into the shallows of the lake and wash them in the lake. Then in the 1980’s it was high enough to take out seawalls and beaches as its doing today. But around 2012 it was low again. Ebb and flow.
