We’re pleased to report that as of now, aka Sunday April 23 2017, that the Lake Muskoka flood has in fact peaked. While it was obvious to the eye yesterday, the proof is in the graph!
Recall the all time high water flood mark was 402″ in 2012. The 2017 flood was thankfully a full foot shy of it and peaked at 392.08”…which is still well over 80% of the docks around.
In the last 24 hours the water has dropped 3/4 of an inch and with a sunny forecast ahead we anticipate that pace to continue. Normal this time of year is around the 374″ mark so we’ve got 18″ to go.
Tip for those of you who, like us, have docks whose tops have popped off, ie are floating right now: tie them back to a tree or whatever is around now. As the water recedes tighten the ropes day by day; it will manually force them to land back on their crib. #workslikeacharm #evenfixesonesthatwerepreviouslyamess
