Hey guys, Frances rose my lake level higher than it has ever been. I live on Lake Norman, which is bout 20 miles north of Charlotte, NC. Our lake is the biggest lake in NC with more shoreline than the entire coastline of NC(more than 600 miles). Anyways, being the biggest resevoir, the dam could not let any more water out because it would wash away homes on the lower 2 lakes below us and cause even more damage. My dad took these pictures while I was away at school!
normally we have to stand on the wood block, behind my Dad's legs, in order to reach the control for the lifts.
