“Take heed to yourselves, that your heart be not deceived, and ye turn aside, and serve other gods, and worship them: and then the Lord’s wrath be kindled against you, and he shut up the heaven, that there be no rain, and that the land yield not her fruit; and lest ye perish quickly from off the good land which the Lord giveth you.”

Deuteronomy 11:16-17


Otisco Lake provides water for some of Syracuse and Onondaga County.  With the lack of rain this summer, the lake is lower than I ever remember it being.

The water should be at least half-way up the rocks.


You can see on the rocks where the normal water level should be.



The water should be up to the shore – it now stops just this side of those geese.  The rest is slimy mud.
