Good pics, Pat.  Wow the water is so high!  (and we were worried that the lake level would be too low this summer!)

The Burnt River is reaching critical levels...here's a picture from today...

A Flood Warning remains in effect for the Kawartha Lakes, specifically the shoreline areas of Balsam, Cameron, and Sturgeon lakes, and Pigeon Lake. There continues to be high potential for flooding to occur along shorelines, in near shore areas, and in low-lying areas, as a large volume of water is passing through the Trent River system.
