This is the same view as yesterday's post:
Minus the boats. The reason there are no boats to be found is the unusual weather we have been having. Early March the temps were in the mid 70's. April we experienced hard freezes and snow. Most summer days brought mid 90 temps with high humidity, and rain by the bucket load. All this factored in and our lake is a mess!! They say the 'lake turned' which means the warmer water at the surface isn't as dense as the cold water at the bottom of the lake. The warm water sinks and the cold water rises, churning everything up.
There are dead snails along shore, which adds to the disgust of it all:Our son loves to scuba and snorkel on this lake because of its clarity. Today one is afraid to let the water touch your skin for fear of 'the itch'.
We have been here since 1977, and have never seen anything like this. The last time we had our boat out, the water temperature was 89 degrees. We normally keep our boat at this dock:
For now its tucked away in the garage until things turn around. The fish aren't biting, they can't even see a worm in the water. The old timers think the lake will 'turn' again this fall, and clear up. I certainly hope they are right.
And that's the way it is..............
