TCC for 4/22/08

The Caretaker's Concern 4/22/08
Lake Temp. 50F.
Ghetto temp. 65 F. and dropping.
Island tmp. 66 F. Yesterday's L/H: 54/74 F.
Current conditions: Little to no wind, light cloud coverage.

The ice-eaters were removed today, chances are pretty slim that this was done prematurely, it would take a serious cold snap for the Lake to ice-over this Spring. If this were the Autumn the Lake being at 50 degrees Fahrenheit would be just becoming too cold to swim in, however in the Spring time, the Caretaker usually won't go in until it is at least 60. In the Spring the top foot or so may be at 50 degrees, but below that it is colder, it is a little tough to keep one's body in but a foot of water while swimming, at least it is for the Caretaker. So he will wait, at the current rate though, it won't be long before the Caretaker will be taking a pleasurable swim this Great Lake of George.

The Caretaker is happy to announce that his assumption about the bats was correct, at least for now, there were no bats surrounding him during his shower this evening. In fact, he didn't see much in the way of bats at all, perhaps the bats have stayed in, perhaps it is date night for all the married bats.

Happy Earth Day--don't ruin it.

--The Caretaker
