Last Swim: 6am Tues 09/13

Water condition: small swells out of the south

Knucke-head-ometer: possibly in the green

There were rumors of a 5:15AM swim, that turned out to be just that.  Possibly deterred by lightening + cold water.

The 6am swim occurred as planned, with eyes open for lightening.  Diablo and I swam to birches.  On the return trip, I thought I saw a flash. Tried (and failed) to alert him, so we just kept swimming back to the beach, unscathed.

Back on land, it was starting to sprinkle, with a side of thunder rumbles.
