don't confuse weather and climate

Levels are low this year, but two years ago they were up.
One interesting thing is that the great lakes recharge cycles have actually changed but the volumes are relatively unchanged. But as you know the great lakes don't affect inland river and lake levels, that's due to the summer drought. And we've had these before.
Thing seem to even out over the long run when it comes to precip. Right now we're getting our payback. Last summer we had two 100-year storm events within two weeks!
I am betting on a snowy and rainy winter here.
