It has been reported, the Great Lakes have risen four feet in the last couple of years. One knows that first hand. A Rock that we canoed over and dove off…at Allenwood Beach as kids, east of Wasaga ….in past few decades seem to be high on the sandy shore as water levels started to shrink…..now it’s back.
I saw it for with my own eyes during a CTV Barrie news story regarding growing water levels on our Great Lakes. Even at Fairlane Lake a couple of guys had to work in neck-deep water putting son number two’s dock in a box back in the water. His sandy beach is all but a memory while the fire pit should disappear following the next heavy rain. Most folks up the shore will be happy with these slowly growing water levels…..do we hear an amen? Perhaps we have the “Stop The Drop” folks to thank for whatever efforts seem to bring back the water – or this was all just a cycle like many have been saying all along.
