I put the secret message "Water Temp 48" into my Ovaltine decoder ring and it translated to "It's nice and warm here in bed"

Perhaps a road trip is in order. The Kenosha bouy is reading 74.8F today at 2:50PM while the Atwater buoy is still at 48. Forty eight.

Anyone else up for a 6 PM swim?

Wind is shifting around late tomorrow, so that's a good sign, but then rain on Friday. :(

I like erin's idea. Perhaps we can do a road trip if it's still cold here for the weekend. Erin, do you know a good place to swim in Kenosha. Where do you get info on "the Kenosha buoy".

I stopped by Big Bay beach just a few minutes ago and got a reading of 50 from the pier, which is close to what the Atwater buoy is saying (48). Yeeeechhh!

I just checked temp at Grant Park, 58'F

Wytosk said...

unfortunately, Racine and Kenosha beaches are experiencing elevated bacteria levels. So there beaches all have advisories or are straight up closed. Maybe Grant Park is far enough north? That or we just need to go to door County and be done with it!

i'm getting the readings from the NOAA site, I'm just looking for buoy locations relative to us.

Grant Park has been cleaned up by the county. There is even a Firch's Resturant with burgers beer and ice cream. Stuff left at shore will need to be watched.

Bluto: Over? Did you say "over"? Nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?
