Oswego Got 3+ Inches of Rain Yesterday

Recommended Posts

Unlike two years ago, Lake Erie is at or near record highs as are some of the others.  The Western Southern Tier has received heavy rain the past few days as well.

It's been a wet spring for much of the Midwest and great lakes region.

We did an addition on our house in 2017 we couldn't get a break with the rain. At one point the crawl space looked like a swimming pool. This year I don't think we have gotten as much rain but still a lot more than usual our backyard is a hill and last week was the driest it has been so I mowed the 1' tall yard. It still had standing water with almost 5 days no rain.

My grass has been at least a foot tall each time I have mowed this year, and very wet at ground level.

All in less than 5 hours time. That equals a month of rain in 5 hours. So much for the Lake Ontario water level going down anytime soon.

 

 

 

My camp is right between Oswego & Fairhaven. Rain gauge here said 4.04 inches. We are saturated to say the least.

I guess the hopes of a 4 inch drop by July are not really realistic. Now they say a 7 inch drop over the next month,

thats really hard to believe.

We didn't get nearly as much in NW Monroe County.  My pool only went up approx. 1/2".

We still going with it is the plan that is to blame?

 

I blame both the weather and plan 2014. I've said all spring that we've had a lot of rain, judging by all the water in my creek all spring. The Eastern side of Lake O had a lot of snow last winter and this spring.

 

Regardless of what lake level numbers are reported, the lake is at least 3ft higher NOW than it was last September 19th when I pulled my boat out of the marina.

Where did I say that the plan was impacting everyone?

Well id like some answers on why they cut flows so drastically in January when they were already 8" or so above average then continued that until it was too late to do anything because if the Ottawa river. Look at the ijc site and the charts of the last 3 years. That 8" is a would make a big difference....hell 4" lower would be a workd of difference. Thats why i blame plan 2014

We had 3" at my house in Rush and I spent the day on Thursday dealing with the patio, basement, and neighbor's house. You know that you can hook your spare bilge pump to a hose and run it off a lawnmower battery to get standing water out of a basement? We had three going at the neighbor's place.

The 10 day forecast doesn't look too bad as far as rain is concerned, so maybe we will see the lake level go down soon.
