May 2, 2011---Two photos for water level camparison. Elevation of Barkley Lake is now 370.75 feet. An increase of .70 to a total of 12.10 feet. Dream Manor now seems to be above the parking area. Keith's two seater bicycle is waiting for warm weather. It rained most all last night and today. Still raining as this report is written. Barkley and Kentucky Dams are both releasing more water attempting to control the lakes near the current level. Still the level increases due to heavy rains.

Even the Great Blue Heron seems unhappy about the dreary weather.

Water level got so high that boats on jacks in "dry dock" began floating. Marina employees used a small work boat to push the floating boats over to dock slips where they were tied down for control.

You think it is bad where you are you should see the Manhattan Harbor in Dayton, Ky. on the Ohio River. Water levels are higher than in many years and it only is getting worse. I have postponed my arrival to my houseboat by a couple of weeks to allow the river to go down.
