Lake Delton and the Wisconsin area got slammed again with a ton of rain and the man mande lake's dam and sea walls finally gave way. NO MORE LAKE. I am not a very religious person, but have said a prayer or two for those involved.
WEll I don't ride up there a heck of a lot, but do know many folks who live on the lake up there and have close friends that just built a 3mil house on the lake that is gone. Can only inmagine how hard it is going to hit their tourist department diue to the fact that was one of the biggest draws to the Wisconsin Dells. It also feeds the most famous of all waterski shows in the Midwest the Tommy Bartlett Watrerski Show.
