This morning was another example of how quickly the Lake can change. The pleasant 71 degree water from last night was replaced by water that was about ten degrees colder. A couple swimmers headed deep to find the warmer water that sometimes lingers out there, but without success. The NOAA maps show much warmer water out there, keep swimming guys. It will be interesting to see if the warmer water returns tonight, it's supposed to be hot and humid today which should help.

Last night's pizza party at Lisa's was a smashing success. We christened a new swim name, McCoy, and we immediately appointed her Social Director. She did a fantastic job of keeping the pizza coming and beer flowing.
