It’s starting to look and feel like we’re living in Seattle in the Lake Travis area.
But don’t let El Niño get you down! All this rain — and finally some heavy rain in the right spot — has brought the water level of Lake Travis up almost 5 feet in the past week and a total of 11 feet this year.
We have two public boats ramps on Lake Travis open for Memorial Day weekend — you just might have to go boating in the rain!
The big event on Friday night is the Spring Jamboree Scrimmage at Lake Travis High School. The rest of this 3-day weekend is filled with plenty of live music and events that celebrate Memorial Day — the official start of summer!
Rain or shine, enjoy your Memorial Day weekend in and around the Lake Travis area. More importantly, let’s take some time this weekend to remember, respect and be thankful for all of those who died serving our nation while in the military service.
