The Caretaker's Concern 11/22/08
Lake Temp. 46 F.
Ghetto temp. 28 F.
Island tmp. 24 F. Yesterday's L/H: 23/31.5 F.
Current conditions: Mix of sun and clouds, wind from the North, 10 to 15 mph, gusting up to 25, it is definitely not hot.
Today's post is going out early today because the Caretaker will be busy for much of the night and doesn't expect to return to the Island until late. The day has been rather cold and windy. Last night's test of the Caretaker's new down sleeping bag went rather well it kept him quite warm, well, except at one point his large left toe caught a chill but it eventually warmed up. Now this is certainly not a full test, it only got down to 21.75 degrees Fahrenheit, but if the current weather pattern is any sign of the Winter to come the Caretaker expects he will have no problem with getting a chance to do a test at Zero. He's looking forward to it, but he hopes to not have the opportunity until the end of December. If it's sooner, well then the Caretaker can expect to have a good Winter for snow and ice this time around which will make up for last Winter's rather poor showing on the snow and ice front.
