That's a lake where my friend lives. The pic is about a week old. We had tons of rain for a few days and all the lakes rose. I think its almost back to normal now.

I'm sure glad our dock is a floating dock so it goes up and down with the lake level. Our only problem is when one of the corners gets stuck on the pole when the lake is dropping. Came down a couple of years ago and had one corner about 4' in the air -- putting a lot of stress on the dock frame. But a couple of "taps" with a sledge hammer and the dock dropped quickly.

To high water like this. And about 4 years ago, the water was up over the meters on the pole.
