ground again. The lake is very low, about 60 feet below the top of
the Dam I'd guess. The marina is kinda in a pond area and all the
water access ramps are high and dry. The camp grounds and ramp across
the river is almost a mile from the water now. Really sad situation.
We keep hoping for a really wet winter so that N.M. will release
water from upstream but that hasn't happened in the 4 years I've been
here. Borger is stable or better. They are building an addition to
the Phillips refinery and have all the trades folks working. That's
why I can't find anyone to help put up my shop. Fritch is still
alive, barely, the tourism industry folded when the lake dried up.
Everything related to the lake is for sale or sitting vacant now.
There's actually a fair bit of surface water still but it's so
shallow in most areas that the only safe boating is around the dam
area. I'd say "come out and visit" but I wouldn't wan't to see you
depressed. Of course, if you're in the area, I'd be depressed if you
didn't stop by for a visit.
