I have yet to go swimming in the lake this year.
That is beyond unusual. Typically I start swimming, on a daily basis, by mid-June.
The air temperatures and all this rain we keep on getting has really done a job on keeping the water temperature down. I took a pool thermometer with me when we went to the beach this evening. I kept it submerged for quite a long time. It was just above 70°F. Around 73°F. That is not good. 70°F is classed cold for a lake.
I am not happy. I checked Lake Winnipesaukee temps. They are still below 70 — as is to be expected given that it is a much deeper lake.
The kids have swum, but just in the last few days.
