Exclamation Black Hole of the Lake

Out on the water I've seen some pretty strange things. This might be a little scary if one were to come across it. But it does have an explanation.

Being the water rat that I am it caught my attention pretty quick and thought some of you might get a kick out of it too.

Re: Black Hole of the Lake

In this case it's just an over flow drain in a lake reservoir that was opened up after the thaw.
But here in the Sound we see these all the time during heavy tidal changes. With a fin keels the boat gets pushed around a lot. Power boats just glide along over the top.
