Today there was a choice to swim with Patriarch at 1PM or Cap'n at 3PM. The title of today's blog tells you the score. I can't blame you for not wanting to swim with Turd, oops, I mean Ted.
Sadly, the persistent offshore winds have put the dreaded Lake Michigan Conveyor Belt into motion. The Conveyor Belt pushes the warm surface water towards the Michigan shore and replaces it with cold water from below.
It was barely swimmable today, and the forecast would indicate continued offshore winds, intensifying the conveyor belt for even colder water. But, as always with Lake Michigan, predictions aren't worth a turd (and Turd's predictions are worth even less), we'll just have to show up and see what happens tomorrow.
And keep in mind, no matter how cold it is, we'll have shots of Killepitsch to warm ourselves afterwards.
