Jeff killed this Louisiana water moccasin today with a pellet gun. The snake was sunbathing on his back stairs that leads down to his dock. Nice shot Jeff, right through his head!

The current water level on Cross Lake in Shreveport is close to a historic low. The current water level is 169.70 feet above sea level, which is almost 3 feet lower than the average. Cross Lake serves as the City of Shreveport water supply. This has been one of the driest summer’s in years for Texas and Louisiana.
Besides the rain being an issue, there has also been nothing done by the City of Shreveport to push an initiative for the dredging of Cross Lake in Shreveport. The depth of the lake has decreased by almost five feet since 1980 and a dredging project is desperately needed by the city of Shreveport. If the issue is not addressed in the next several years then the future cost of the dredging project will be more than the city could possibly afford. The city leadership needs to step it up, push forward and propose a budget to dredge the lake before the silt builds up beyond what the man made lake can bare.
