The new length of the Lake

This site’s FAQ has proudly stated that the length of the Lake at its longest stretch is “almost two miles.” It is with regret that we have updated that with a less impressionistic number. The Lake at its longest is in face 1.24 miles. Our source? The mighty Google Maps.

Google Maps has a feature that lets you stretch a line from any two points, and it tells you the length of the line. A line from 45 NE Cove Road to the very other end of the Lake is something like the longest straight line that doesn’t touch land. Google’s report of 1.25 miles is consistent with the Garmin watch worn by our swims-the-Lake-the-long-way nephew.

Those who are distressed that the length of their morning row or swim has now been seriously downgraded may want to switch to metric: Lake Buel is slightly more than 2km long.

Fireworks 2015!

As in years past, Saturday evening of Labor Day weekend brings the annual Lake Buel Fireworks show!  Set to begin once it is sufficiently dark, you’ll be able to enjoy spectacular fireworks launched from the lake shore.  Heavy rain however would force postponement and the rain date is the next day, Sunday.

Enjoy!

Administrative note: A new way to get to this site

You’ve been getting to this site by going to LakeBuel.org. Now you can also get here by going to LakeBuel.com. Same site, just one more way to get here.

The LakeBuel.com site became available, so we scooped it up and set it up so that going there automatically takes you to our .org address.

Note that it doesn’t matter how you capitalize these or whether you prepend the www. E.g., http://www.laKEbuEL.com should work just fine for those who want to keep an even “KEEL,”  wwW.lAKEbuel.com will work for those who want to leave something in their “WAKE,” and LAkeBuEL.org should work for those who like to “LABEL” everything.
