      Water Temp:
         47.4 - macho meter
         8.8C (47.4) - Traceable Platinum Scientific Meter
      Air Temp: 94 & sunny

This evening marked the 3rd swim where I've used the Traceable Platinum Scientific Meter to measure the water temp in addition to the Macho Meter 2000.  Up until this evening the Macho Meter had been recording a water temp approx. 1.5 degrees colder than the Traceable.  Oddly the two meters were in sync this evening....although one could argue that once the water temp goes below 50 does it really matter?

Hard to say "no" to a skin swim opportunity when the air temp is on the plus side of 90....so of course I didn't.  Similar to the last two swims, this evening's voyage took me from Klode's northeast beach up to The Garage and back.

Now that the strong west winds have subsided perhaps our warm(er) water will have a chance to return?  Stay tuned....

Did 4k at Noyes pool. Talk about extremes, from hypothermia in 40+ lake to heat stroke in 80+ pool. Choose your poison. Hurry up and open back up WSAC!
