One of my favorite sports is water skiing. Yesterday got invited to go ski on a man made lake this morning at 6:30 am, and let me tell you it was awesome! It's a full seven bouy course, and the tow boat, none less than a 2002 Malibu. The lake was dug last fall: 250,000 yards of dirt hauled out to make the 200' by quarter mile stretch. Wanna do this by hand, thats 1.5 million wheel barrow loads. It has a 12 ml liner laid across the entire bottom, clay on top of that. Let me tell you, quite an impressive set up. Anyways...heres a picture of me skiing, you can't see the course bouy as it is right behind my hip.

Where is that picture taken? Is it really that dry there? I assume that used to be a lake. We are very close to having THE WETTEST summer ever on record. I wish they would move some of the rain here to other parts of the country, we just plain don't need anymore.
