It happened again! The water temp changed more than 10 degrees in one day, this time for the worse. And it could be happening again, as today's onshore winds blow the warm water in again, at least it looks that way on the colored map. I've seen these kinds of temperature shifts before, but never so many and so rapidly as this year.
Congrats to Cap'n , who had an outstanding Racine Tri, and scored a spot in the Ironman 70.3 championships in Clearwater FL. Now, of course, he is committed to swimming in the lake until November.
On the way down to the beach today Marcella, the leader of the exercise class, asks "How are you today? I reply, "I couldn't be better". So she asks, "What do you mean, you couldn't be better?". Why do people keep asking me such difficult questions, especially so early in the morning? Ah, the burden of being Patriarch.
