Encountering a swim in July where the water temp exceeds the air temp....rare.  Encountering a day in July where the water temp for both an AM and PM swim exceeded the air temp...really rare.  Encountering a day when this occurs where the maximum water temp reading struggles to break 65....exceptionally rare.

It's the little things like logging a double dipper day in July where the water temp exceeded the air temp for both swims when the water temp barely registered above 65 that help me answer that proverbial question as to why I swim in Lake Michigan every day. least that's story I'm sticking with for today....
