Congratulations to all the triathlon finishers!  Especially to North Shore Nancy who finished despite bad luck and great adversity.

I was surprised to see so many of you on the beach this afternoon.  I would have thought you'd have your fill of Lake Michigan, but there's no denying the power of her siren song.  

The lake just can't seem to make up it's mind.  65 on Friday, 53 on Saturday, and 60 today, but not really a steady temperature, patches of warm and cold, and even a great difference between the surface and a couple feet down.  A jumbled up mess, but I'm hoping the preponderance of warm spots means that warm water is moving in.
