TCC for 4/24/08

The Caretaker's Concern 4/24/08
Lake Temp. 49F.
Ghetto temp. 60 F. and dropping.
Island tmp. 59 F. Yesterday's L/H: 54/76 F.
Current conditions: Little to no wind, mostly clear sky, a few wisps of clouds here and there.

The wind was blowing from the Narrows today, and blowing pretty good, perhaps the strongest day time wind since ice-out. The Caretaker found his "Beaufort-ometer" and went down to Cocktail Point to get a reading, it showed a sustained wind of 15 miles per hour, gusting up to 20. It would have been a great day for sailing, a good heavy, steady wind. Too bad the wind was not from the South or North, then the Caretaker could have had the big burn-off, unless of course there is a burn ban, there seems to be burn bans in all the area counties but the Caretaker has yet to hear about Warren county. He could call and find out, but since he can't do any burning anyway he won't bother. There is talk of rain for the weekend, the Caretaker hopes it does rain so he can get some burning done.

The strong wind from the Narrows prompted the Caretaker to move his shower set-up again, the view isn't so hot in comparison to the previous spots but it still "ain't" bad, it sure beats the view from the washtub in the Ghetto.

A tinge of read is starting to appear upon the Mountains of the East shore, the buds of the trees are starting to come out. Hippity-Hoppity Spring is on its way!
