More dry lakes

This summer's drought has lowered several of the lakes around here, but it seems not as bad as Hiwassee's low levels (news reports earlier this summer said Fontana was below winter levels too). It's been dry all year but we may have had one brief rainstorm since the beginning of August. Hoping for some this week.

At Lake Chatuge, the water is down to winter levels but docks are still floating, barely:

At Nantahala, they started dropping water levels just recently, according to one fisherman (this dock would be level at summer fill):
