News From Lake Lodoga
“Where all the children are feral and all the boats are barely above the water line.”
We’ve had several people ask us if there is water this year. The answer is yes. Here’s the hard numbers straight from government sources:
- As of Wednesday June 10th, there is 29879 Acre Feet of water [CA Dept of Water CDEC: Current Reservoir Levels]
- June 30 2014, there was a piddly 8600 Acre Feet of water — and yet we still managed to have fun and build a lot of dumb boats [CA Dept of Water CDEC: June Historical Reservoir Storage]
- June 30 2013, there was 28200 Acre Feet of water
So there you have it. Lake Lodoga has more water than there was in 2013 and waaaaaayyyy more than 2014. While they may drain it some more there is ONLY 19 DAYS TILL CAMP TIPSY! So most likely we are looking at water levels comparable to 2013.
So stop dabbling and buy your tickets to the best rotten boat building contest in drought ridden California! I mean who knows what next year will be like? You don’t want to miss out on what may very well be the best and last Camp Tipsy!
It’s going to be great! Rotten Boats! And music by Friction Quartet, Trio Paz, and Rube Waddell!!
