After loosing our hard earned money we decided to visit Hoover Dam to check on the water level. I read where the level is dropping 12ft a year and unless heavy snows occur, it will be at a critical stage very soon.
May 11, 2016--Nevada prepared for more Lake Mead cuts without ‘drastic steps’ (Las Vegas Sun)Lake Mead is expected to surpass its historic low after next Wednesday. By the end of June, it is expected to have dropped to its lowest level since the man-made reservoir was created by the completion of the Hoover Dam in 1935. And as the elevation drops, Nevada, Arizona and California are working out a new framework for acceptable reductions in water they receive.

It still remains a sight to be seen with the dam, new bridge and the lake. Hopefully it will return to maximum level soon and the states involved in portioning out the water can come up with a sensible plan.
That was our day, how was yours?
