Default Airlock question

OK, so I made a lager about 2 weeks back, and I just left on vacation this last weekend. Im gone for 3 weeks, and I was just thinking, do you think that the water in the airlock would evaporate in this time? Its the three piece kind, and my house is set to be about 50F for the lager to ferment if that matters. I sure hope not, now im worrying

It takes months for mine to evaporate. I wouldn't worry about a couple weeks.

Should be fine. The house will probably smell like sulfur/rotten eggs when you get home but that is normal for a lager.

I've got an airlock on a mead that has been sitting for two years. Haven't had to refill it.
