Lake Lavon, Texas

21 Sep

About two weeks ago I drove to Farmersville to see a client. The 380 route is quite pleasant once you pass through very congested McKinney and Princeton. Once in the country plenty of development can be seen but there are areas of open fields and there is Lake Lavon.

It was quite startling to see the result of the 2011 drought has taken on this reservoir. Water is normally seen over this entire area in the image above. Traffic was at a minimum on the four lane highway and I was able to pull off onto the shoulder and quickly take a picture of the drought stricken shore.

    I just finished building a new home on the shore (?) of Lake Lavon, actually in the small town of Lavon. And you’re right….there isn’t much of a view these days. And boating is dangerous, too. Stumps that used to be quite keep are now just below the waterline, making boats very vulnerable. Let’s hope we get some rain soon. 😉

    Lake Lavon is basically my backyard… so sad to see the water level so low.

    Not much better down south, here. We had some rain a couple of days ago and that helped douse some fires.
