A WHITE MORNING FOR BOND COUNTY
Bond and the surrounding counties woke to a white morning today. A possible one or two inch accumulation is expected before the snow ends later Wednesday night. The snow will be followed by very cold temperatures. The cold front could plunge temperatures down into the single digits by the weekend, and the wind chill will likely dip below the zero mark. Remember to stay inside as much as possible; when travel is necessary allow extra time and have supplies to stay warm in case you are stranded.
CARLYLE LAKE WATER LEVELS RISE
Water levels at Carlyle Lake have risen after the recent heavy rainfalls. On Monday, December 28 the lake level was almost at 452 feet. The higher water level has impacted recreation areas and boat ramps around Carlyle Lake. Many boat ramps are closed along with some fishing piers. Below the dam, the General Dean recreation area and the boat ramp downstream are closed. In addition, motorists should use caution when driving in low-lying areas around the lake. For more information on which ramps and areas are closed, call the Carlyle Lake Project office at 594-2484.
