After a week of sandbagging, I finally got a chance to go play last night . . . only to find the gates closed and the baskets pulled at Turkey Creek. I tracked down the Ranger and he said they had too many people parking up there and then sneaking down through the woods to the dam. He didn't know when it would re-open.
When life gives you lemons, stick them in the freezer for a few hours, then throw them back, 'cause they're like rocks, man.
