Susan and I took the boat our for a little ride this afternoon. The weather was awesome for a Saturday in mid-January. At one point during the day the temperature on my car dashboard read 81-degrees. The actual temperature was probably closer to 75-degrees. Anyway, it was way too warm for January. I decided to check the lake water temperature when we were out. I was especially interested in the temperature of the lake because I need to start swimming soon for the Try Charleston 70.3 on April 20th.
Lake Spivey water temperature at 5PM on Saturday, January 12th, 2013
As you can see, 53-degrees is way to freakin' cold to swim in the lake even with a full wetsuit.
