Lake Matthews


Documenting the very low waterline along the shore of Lake Matthews in Riverside California for this Skywatch Friday post.


Much of this water arrives from Northern California and the Colorado River both of which are also experiencing drought conditions along with the rest of the Western United States.

If the forecast of a good strong El Nino condition proves correct this picture will be different in a couple of years as reservoirs and ground water are replenished and the lake returns to its normal depth.

A mechanic/driver could learn a lot from a run down the pavement and this little cardboard dial.
