Lake George, Dec 2011

It has rained a lot lately, so we decided to visit Lake George and see how much water is there.

It turns out there is significantly more water  than usual.  In fact, this is the first time for me to see real water in the lake.  I remember being quite puzzled the first time when Mr Hippo told me we were driving along Lake George.  You cannot blame me; normally you would expect to see some water in a lake, wouldn't you?

The picture above was taken at a prime hang gliders site.  The picture on the right was the 140 megawatt Capital Wind Farm located along the SE side of the lake.  Ironically. the wind farm was built as part of a desalination plant project  to offset the power usage of the plant.
