Low Tide on Lake Michigan

Low tide...don't I wish.  These photos show our docks yesterday afternoon with the lake level at about 577.15 ft. above sea level.  The long term average for Lake Michigan is 578.83 ft. The record low was in 1964 at 576.48 ft.  You can keep track of the day to day changes in lake level at the NOAA Great Lakes Level Data web page.

The dock in the background has been lifted by the ice and will have to be re-set.
