    The horror!

    I sometimes sailed some of those Great Lakes aboard deep keeled sailboats (many years ago), I imagine it is affecting them considerably today.

    But, if the Great Lakes dry up it will have no effect whatsoever on the 'deniers'.

    Case in point is down here in South Texas, all our lakes and rivers are approaching or have exceeded minimum pool levels due to an ongoing extended and extreme drought...climate change-wot dat?? (fixing to rain tonight though, maybemaybe)
    EG: Lake Travis near Austin is ~50-60 feet below average pool level. Yes, you really have to see all those now exposed limestone cliffs to really appreciate it, compare to y'all's mere two foot drops.
    Meanwhile, a few miles away around the state Capitol (and in DeeCee) our esteemed Repuke leaders are still howling at the denial moon (Jeebus tole dem so in da bibble).

      probable casualty, the hydro gauges used to monitor lake, stream and river levels. 'Cause we know there ain't gonna be anymore floods, what with things warming up so much, and droughts spreading.

      Over 300 USGS real-time streamgages used to support NWS river forecasts and warnings are at risk of being discontinued. Click here for more information from the USGS...
