Bomber & Murph & I went up to Lake Delton in Wisconsin on Saturday and left Sunday. We wanted to see the damage
that the draining lake had done. We also planned to get in some metal detecting while we were there. Once we got
there we were blown away at the damage. We got a room just feet from the lake; it looked like a bomb went off. All
that was left was dried and cracking mud. We hunted for a couple of hours then called it quits, finding mostly lead
fishing weights, and metal scrap.

Talking to the locals, they said the lake drained in about 2 hours!!! They also pointed us to where they think the most
coins would be. We didn't find much, but the trip was definitely worth it. My thoughts and prayers go out to the whole
town; on the news they said that the $1 billion tourism industry is gone. The locals are hoping that the lake will be
repaired and back to normal by next year. God I hope so...

I always thought it would be cool to have a house by a lake. Not any more.

Nice pictures. I like the good luck token.

WOW !! I woulda thought you woulda got tons of coins and jewelry in the beach area, but maybe the water blew out so fast, it sucked all the good stuff to the other end of the lake !!

Thats crazy... what initiated the draining of the lake ? Did a dam let loose or something ? Thanks for posting!
