    Hello folks - Western Lake is flowing rapidly into the Gulf. The lake level has dropped a good foot since last night. I'm curious if it openned naturally or if the Corps of Engineers or a neighbor with a shovel dug it open. Anyone know?

    The corps won't touch it.

    Usually when it gets fat for awhile someone will get it started. But after a big rain and/or high surf nature does it's thing and all the critters are happy about it.

    I'd heard that because the park is on Septic tanks that when the lake got real high the corps openned it up to keep the septic tanks from flooding out. I've only been a full time resident for 6 months, so am still learning the lay of the land (and water).

    That has got to an "urban legend". Western Lake has been opening and closing for all of my six decades of life, sometimes with a little help from man and often by Mother Nature. It does look much like the picture attached to one of 'noogas' posts.

    LMAO! Ok, here is how to post a photo. Now I am a computer tard so lets hope I don't make this harder than is really is.

    1. Your pics have to be posted / hosted somewhere on the web already. I've heard that Yahoo has a pic hosting section. Have you done this?

    That should be easy. Just thought I could upload them directly from my pute.

    I do rather enjoy the huge font.

    2. You need to have both windows open at the same time.

    3. Right click on the pic.

    4. Go down to Properties and Right click on Properties.

    5. Go up to the URL address and highlight it (using you left clicker)

    6. After it is highlighted then Right click and copy.

    7. Left click on the Img button on the SoWal post window.

    8. Left click after the Img tag, right click and paste.

    9. Left click the Img* tag and hit submit.

    Simple as pie

    There is a problem with the URL. Yahoo may not allow hotlinking.
