Spring has sprung in Horseshoe Bay! Our temperatures have been consistently in the 60’s & 70’s over the last several weeks and we’ve even hit over 80 several times. Once we can start watering our lawn again, things should be turning green pretty quickly. Since my husband & I live on the lake, our sprinkler system feeds from LBJ & we’ve turned it off until lake levels are back up to normal.
The LCRA will begin refilling Lake LBJ will on Feb. 25 and should be completed by Feb. 27 unless an emergency requires LCRA to refill the lake earlier. Refilling Lake LBJ is expected to draw Lake Buchanan down about one foot. I’m planning on taking photos during that time for posting to the blog & my web site.
