It was flowing backwards up here Friday. It is at what I call low water equilibrium.

Only thing that can drop it any more would be a steady south wind.... and the NOAA forecast is for a steady SE blow later in the week.

We will see.

The canal has 3 inches of water in it the lake is a mud hole going out not sticky yet the water in Poinsett is dropping so Florence canal fed can't keep up

Ran fine it was warm. Put in a cabbage. Drove THRU THE LANDING. Then spun the truck around and backed down to the river.
