Last November the water level was at an all time low. This winter, there was the most snow and water run off in 10 years, which will postpone any water rationing until at least 2016.
At the end of this year Lake Mead is projected to be 100 feet (30 m.) below its high water mark, and less than half full. We need water in the desert Southwest, but thank goodness for the water storage capacity of Lake Mead.
Today is Sunday so check out our beautiful travel photos of Villa Balbianello on Lake Como, Italy at Viva la Voyage! Lake Mead and Lake Como are both lakes. The similarity ends there.
