The lake just keeps drying up. Almost every day we can notice that there’s less water than the day before.
This photo was taken yesterday evening. Saturday and Sunday, even though much cooler, the wind was pretty strong and I’m guessing those dry winds helped with the drying up process. Monday was gorgeous! Cool and not terribly windy. I was out early with Speck and it was uncomfortable being out in shorts. We have a couple of 100º+ days in the 15 day forecast but the worst of the heat seems to be behind us. Now, if we could just get some rain.
All of our water in this area comes from the lake. Sometimes when we flush the toilet, the water that comes in looks worse than what went out. (Bet you really wanted to know that!). The ice from our ice maker looks like what went down the toilet! Maybe that’s some new recycling effort. 🙂
In the fridge downstairs, I’m using bottled water in the ice trays for our drinks and what comes out of the ice maker, we’re using in the cooler or just to cool down water. When I brine a chicken, I use hot water to dissolve the salt, then put ice in there to cool the water down before putting the chicken in. Otherwise, the ice maker, even with a whole house filter and a filter on the fridge and a filter under the sink, it’s just making gross ice and I might as well turn it off for a while.
Anyway, the cool weather is definitely helping me like Texas a whole lot better!
