There are tons of man-made lakes in Texas.

But, Texas only has one natural lake.

What does that tell you about the normal climate of Texas.

LOL, I get it.

And yes, they are drilling for gas like you wouldn't believe down here.

They are sucking the water table gone. And then ruining it at the same time so peoples well water catches on fire.

Hoping somebody on the MSM picks this up since I know they read GLP LOL>


This is pretty serious folks. I don't think people understand how important this area is to the nation.


They are in pretty dire straights. This is big news. It is seriously dry down here.

I've lived here since 1984 and this is the dries spring/summer we have ever had. I can't remember the last time it rained.

This is the problem when men attempt to 'tame' nature. Nature is not tameable - not with our petty technology.

Texas should not be as populated as it is - Same with southern California, Nevada, Arizona and all other dry places.

We humans think we are smart and can outsmart Mother Nature.

While you see a 'water crises' I see Mother Nature reclaiming her space and making exactly the way she wants it to be.

Oh it has changed here. I am not a global warming type person but I will admit that the climate has changed.

I put my faith in real science and the sun.

The Sahara was once a lush tropical paradise. The bottom half of Texas used to be under the ocean too.

We live on a ball that is 4.5 billion years old. Patterns change, I don't know if this is going to be back in the 30's dust bowl or not. The middle of the nation is flooding, so obviously they got all the moisture this year. Who knows, next year we may be dry again or we may flood.

Right now its dry as hell and getting very scary.

I can agree with this. Why try to build a lake in the desert because there were a few wet years?

About lake Meredith: the lake high was 101.85 ft, when I moved to Amarillo the lake was 99 ft, I checked just now and the level is 36.14 ft. The water authority has been using well water hoping that rains would come and start to fill the lake.
This year Amarillo and the surrounding area has had 0.5 inches of rain, the norm is around 5 - 7 inches. The only crops alive are on irrigation. Additional removal of underground water supplies. Some people who live outside of Amarillo, their water wells are drying up.

Hot temperatures ( 100 + days ) with winds in the 20-30 miles per hour with gust sometimes to 40 miles per hour. A program on the History Channel explained that the Sahara desert was caused by drying winds that never stopped blowing and took away the moisture. If the hot dry winds continue without rains the Panhandle of Texas could become mostly a desert maybe not as dramatic as the Sahara but enough to stop framing and ranching.

Yeah I don't doubt it. I am a Bass Fisherman and I gotta tell you, it's been rough on the lakes this year.

I've never known the wind to blow like it has been since the end of Winter. It's been blowing every damned day. We got a couple weeks break at the beginning of June but the last few days its picked up again.

The lakes in the Fort Worth area are doing ok, but you guys are seriously fucked. I bet Meredith is gone by September.

First I bet there is a Golden Algae bloom that kills most of the fish, then as the level drops it will be like O.C. Fisher and low oxygen levels will kill the rest. Then...it will dry up and that will be the end of that.

Also...

Where did you go to check the current depth of the lake? Do you have a link you could share? There are other lakes in the area I'm curious to find what their current depths are.

That's because you guys are doing so much mining for natural gas. The fracking method is taking all of your water. Your creating jobs, no doubt about that, but your using up all of your water.

Chinese companies are there, doing the mining and shipping the Gas to China. Their getting a free ride because they are using your water. WOW, what a trade off, right?

Chinese have a couple of companies there right now, doing this right under your noses.
