We've lost ten degrees from the wonderful 71 of Monday night, but it's still a quite swimmable 60 plus.

Note: I've been counting swimmers wearing only wetsuit bottoms or lava pants as "skin" swimmers, but I'm now calling that a "wetsuit" swim.  Bottoms or lava pants don't provide much warmth, but they do provide lots of buoyancy.  USAT and USMS put them in the wetsuit category and so will I going forward.

Hurray, the best part of my day is yet to come (after I ride my bike home from work)!
