This September the water level is relatively low. This is probably a good thing because the spillway is not yet fixed and the weather guessers are predicting a wet winter. (We saw a headline on Sunday saying the spillway will not be finished by November 1.) Therefore, a low lake level is a good thing. Click here to see the lake level last year at this time.

BTW, I named this post the "Land of the Fruit and Nuts" because California produces a lot of fruit and a lot of nuts, both of which are healthy for you.
