    How did you get a date for when the aerial was taken?

Given why they were doing the replacement, I would guess that was a well thought out issue.
    The watershed division is roughly between the Tram and the Old Man Vistor's Center. Profile Lake drains east into the Pemi River while Echo Lake drains west toward the CT river.

    The refilling the lake likely wouldn't have been a problem if rainfall would have been at least 50% of normal or better during the last several months.

    The Google Earth desktop program displays the imagery date. You can actually cycle back through older imagery as well.

    I have heard they have less than 10 days of snowmaking capacity in the lake right now. If this is true its an utter disaster. They blew snow for 60 freaking days straight on Lower Cannon alone last year.

    I totally missed the change in topography on that. Thanks for the correction.

    I think you need to take a deep breath and calm down about this. For all we know, the lake is filled and everything is going to be fine. Have some faith in these guys, pretty sure they looked at all possibilities and what the consequences would have been if they lacked snowmaking capacity. It is also possible that since they had to install some sort of bypass, when the dam was being reconstructed and raise (to keep flow to the downgradient stream), maybe they have some leeway this year for what levels need to be maintained in the lake.

    I drove by the long pond. the Concord water supply. Couldn't believe how low it was. I'm not worried about Cannon though. This rain storm should drop at least an inch up there and they'll be fine.

    Take a deep breath?? Calm Down?? By god ski season is here, I am not thinking clearly anymore. Neurosis is setting in. Daily weather checks will soon become hourly.
    Ill take some pics on Sat and see what's up.

    I really didn't mean to offend you by that comment. Look, whatever the condition is, its not like we can do anything about it.

    And yes, the season is upon us and I am also checking weather condition all the time.
