Swim Report – February 19, 2023 – Winter Fading

After the late week cold snap, we lucked out again on Sunday. The air temp was a very tolerable 40F at 6:40am. But the big news was the lake temp that came in at 37F – a reversal of the downward trend we’ve been seeing since January. So it looks like we might be in the 40F+ zone any day now!

Lake Michigan had a mild ripple from a slight southwest breeze, but not in any way noticeable in swim. I went with my neoprene shorty again and was able to do 1/3 of a mile in total comfort. I had a slight afterdrop post-swim, but certainly nothing like the ones in January.

So it looks like Spring is just around the corner!
