Businesses around Lake Delton say they're struggling to get through the summer after June storms drained the lake. The rains blew out part of Lake Delton's shoreline. Water drained into the Wisconsin River, leaving behind a giant mud pit. Workers hope to refill the lake by next summer. But the resorts and restaurants around the lake are hurting right now. Owner Tom Diehl says revenue is down about 90 percent from last year at the Tommy Bartlett show. Sunset Bay Resort co-owner Dawn Baker says her receipts are down about 60 percent. Terry Jacobson owned two vacation condos that washed away with the lake. He says the homes were worth about 1.5 million dollars and he's lost about $30,000 in revenue.
