Lake Delton ~ Gone in 4 hours
When do you hear of a lake emptying? We we on vacation in Wisconsin when a lake decided to empty and take a few houses with it. I have never heard of such a thing and of course I had to go and see for myself.
Well here are the photos to show that it is in fact empty. I know it was on t.v. but it just seemed unbeleiveable.
Paige, my trusty side kick and I had to explore and walk the edge of the non-lake and I am so glad that we did. To see this in person is a breath taking event. I think she will remember it the rest of her life, I know I will.
A few days of torrential rain sent the 267-acre lake rushing through an embakment that was holding up Highway A'.
Paige and I were standing down in the lake about 15 feet below this dock.
It is hard to see how dry the lake was. It is a little deciving to see the photos they make the mud look like water.
This was all the water left that we saw, and a few unfortunate fish.
Here is a video of it from u-tube it is so unbeliveable.
