Lake Michigan Water Level Update

Big drop from 2020 to 2021.  Predicted 2022 June range in gray bars.  Could get as low as 2015.  However, receding water level very different than rising water level.


Wednesday, May 18, 2022

Noting that period of late 1960s to late 1980s had a lot of water level years similar to the current Lake Michigan water level.  There was an extreme high in 1986 similar to that we just experienced in 2020.  Notably, the period in magenta did not show any extreme low water levels, like those we saw when we first started on lake Michigan (start of green range).

Pine Tree Tops

by Gary Snyder

In the blue night 

frost haze, the sky glows 

with the moon 

pine tree tops 

bend snow-blue, fade 

into sky, frost, starlight. 

The creak of boots. Rabbit tracks, deer tracks, 

what do we know.
