Chris and I were out bright and early at Ladder #1, but we were almost too late to witness another amazing sunrise. I was able to do my first out-and-back swim to Oak Street Beach for 2009 as there was no pesky ice barring the way. And I can definitely tell that the water is getting warmer. I’d estimate we’re in the 37F – 39F range right now which means that I can probably switch to a lighter wetsuit next month.
All in all, a great way to usher in Spring and celebrate the fact that we were able to tough it out all winter long. Old Man Winter sure gave us a run for our money, but in the end even he couldn’t keep us out of the lake!
