All of this green should be covered with water. The plants started growing so tall that once in a while people were out mowing it. Do you see how far away the water is?
Do you see the cement in the lower left hand corner of the picture? That is one of the large tunnels that run from this side of the lake under the road to an area known as the swamp. Yes, the lake should be up to this tunnel and flowing into it.

This pic is the other side of the road known as the swamp. Usually all of the ground covering is submerged in water and yucky smelling algae is growing.
