Summer at the lake?

When I came across this article the other day entitled“Why is Lake Abert Disappearing” by Rob Davis over at the Oregonian Newspaper after stumbling upon the article “When Water Turns to Dust” over at High Country News by Hillary Rosner (which unfortunately has no link), it instantly reminded me of Lake Mead and the recent record low that it hit earlier this year.

Here’s a great article on Lake Mead, entitled “Lake Mead reaches a record low” by over at Earthsky. This whole climate change is really  hitting home this summer. With the fires in Ft. McMurray (where one of the St. Louis Blues hockey players is from) and the fact now that we’ve been at 99 degrees here in St. Louis the last three days and it’s only June.

Ouch!
