On a normal day in the winter, we would be the only boat on the water, but not this past weekend. We finally saw the dark side come out, along with our most recent Florida Transplants.

Conditions


It was Cold (44 degrees)

Sharing the water

Florida Transplants were COLD....not really, they had the heater and blanket.



On our way in, hard to see, but the Dark Side was providing a show for us.

Thanks Cliff for another wonderful day on the water. Sorry it took so long to get the pictures posted.

Yep, Mike landed one or two of his attempts.

Wow...I'm jealous. The spring service on my boat has already begun (doing it myself this year) in anticipation...

I've decided to launch mine on LW the first weekend of March. Hopefully the temp by then will be 50 -- that's where I'm drawing the line last year. Last year, first with the boat, rode in the beginning of February... never again!

Well Cal, if you need a third, you know who to call. We miss you on this side of the mountains.

Umali,

I actually convinced them (Craig Fulton, and his wife) that it wasn't that cold. Craig is going to give it a shot this weekend.

On a side note, I drove back from Spokane yesterday and it was 66 degrees in vantage. There was butter for miles.

Ha ha. Good one Joe. This Floridian doesn't have to be anywhere near the North East to know you guys are the hardest of the hardcore.

I can't believe it was 66 up there yesterday. It was colder than that in Central Florida on Tuesday.

Dark Side going big!

It is warm on this side of the mountains... mid-50's today in Yakima. But I took my new puppy up to the Yakima River this weekend and there's still icebergs along the banks. I'm sure the water temp on the Columbia is probably right around 40 degrees! What was the temp in the water on Lk Sammamish? The King County Lakes Data site says 52, but hasn't been updated for a couple weeks.

Oh, and for those who complain about mid-50's being cold, the ground is usually frozen over here for at least a few more weeks. Weirdest winter in Washington ever...

Yeah, I just talked to someone in Minnesota who said it was 50 degrees. She was in shock.
Choose your sick days wisely.

Water temp was 44 degrees on this Saturday, I think the air was somewhere around there too.
