Yes, the two days of rain did noticeably raise the water level in the lake.
the water level is now 17" as measured at the end of the dock on May 26, 2009. This is not directly comparable to the 15.5" previously reported, as a measuring methodology had not been adopted for the earlier depth. However, I would estimate that the level is up a little over an inch.
For purposes of comparison to future 2009 season water level measurements. The correct methodology for determining the water level is to rest the SSMR (Standard Shag Measuring Ruler) on the edge of the base of the left post supporting the end of the dock.
