This is one of the biggest lakes behind a series of 7 dams on the Colorado river which runs through Austin. The bar in the picture is several hundred feet above the lake and a popular place to go watch sunsets, but it gives you an idea how big the lake is.

Because of flooding upstream the lake has risen 21 feet in the last 24 hours. Its hard to imagine that much water overnight.
