The Caretaker's Concern 3/4/08 Ghetto temp. 46 F. and rising. Island tmp. 31 F. Yesterday's L/H: 35.5/37.5 F. Current conditions: Mix of freezing rain and hail, strong wind from the East, 15 to 20 mph gusting to 30 mph.
The current warming trend was a pleasant break from the below zero temperatures, however with the wind tonight and the resulting heat loss it is tending more towards the cold side again. As pleasant as the warm weather has been, it is not very good for the ice nor the snow, quite a bit of snow on the Lake has melted, soon too will follow the ice. It would be better to save this warmer weather for later in the year, hopefully the cold will return soon.
