Flash Flood Warning No Longer in Effect

TERRAPIN FLYER, Thanks for the information. I had a friend who was caretaker there in the 1960s and we would take our children over to Juncal Dam for barbeques with our friends. When the Mrs. had major surgery I spent a week there helping her and riding her husband's horse around the lake. We also knew Bill Brooks who drowned in the 1969 flood.
