Can't find the link right now, but I saw something that said Lake Mead had risen something like three feet but Lake Powell only a foot and it is dropping fast. The article I did find from today said Lake Powell dropped 1.5 feet in the past 11 days and is only 20 feet from the level at which it can no longer generate electricity.
