Well, it was bound to happen sometime...and if you asked me 34 days ago if we would enjoy more than a day or two on the plus side of 70 I would have laughed hysterically and asked if you wanted another shot of Pitsch.  Despite the very cold start to our Lake Michigan swim season we  astonishingly enjoyed a stretch of 33 consecutive days with water temps above 60.  Even more surprising was how many of those days had water temps on the plus side of 70!

As sad as it was to see out streak of 60+ water temps end I'm happy to report that the water temps appear to be rebounding nicely.  While there's no guarantee that the water will again warm up above 60 this year there's also no reason to believe that it won't.
