Our Cups Runneth Over: Area Lakes Are Full

North Texas is sitting in a relative sweet spot.
North Texas is sitting in a relative sweet spot.

A little more than two months ago, I posted about the prolonged drought in which we were mired and how Lake Lavon – a primary source of water for the North Texas Municipal Water Districts – sat at 12 feet below normal.

Today, thanks especially to the deluge of the last several days, Lake Lavon is 100 percent full, as are most of the other water reservoirs for our eastern side of the Dallas-Fort Worth area. This includes Grapevine Lake, Lewisville Lake, and Lake Ray Hubbard.

But we should continue to pray for our friends in West Texas. There’s still a lot of red on that drought map.

  1. So why are we still under water rationing? So the city can stockpile water to sell elsewhere this summer?
