Please Join me in the Celebration of a brand new ski season.
I actually got out on the water today and it was glass. 86 degrees air temp and water temp 70. What a great day to kick off the ski season.
So hopefully everyone else who hasn't celebrated the start of their season will get to do so, soon!
Are those unseasonably warm temps for up there? (86 degrees air temp and water temp 70.) That's about where we should be right now... Maybe I should go up and visit the Fam. in WA.!
In the tri cities we are in the desert, most people don't realize that southeastern washington is pretty dry 8" of rain a year and warm (spring through Fall) Our normal high this time of year is 76 (95 in mid july) as reported in today's paper. But normally we get 8-10 80+ degree days in may.
We have a couple of shallow areas where we ski so the water warms fast. Our lows this time of year are around 50 so the water gets and stays warm.
Just don't ski on the columbia without a dry suit.
April was about 5-10 degrees below normal the whole month, so I will take a few warm days.
Cleaned and waxed the boat today, dropping it in tomorrow for the first set of the season in NS... hopefully warmer than 47F haha
Was supposed to be cleaning, waxing, and taking the first set today but I have a fever and have felt like crap basically the last 3 days. I am jealous of you guys.
