So, here it is June 4. The lake is still only 66 degrees! Brrr. I wanted to go water skiing for the first time this season, but unfortunately the boat battery is complete toast. We put the boat in over a month ago, and the battery drained itself pumping the bilge. Last weekend I detected this, and charged the battery. Today I went out and the bilge pump was still operating, but it didn't have enough power to start the boat. I gave it a little charge (feeling stupid I hadn't done it last night when it could have had all night), but it wasn't enough to start the boat. Should have been -- it went from "charging" to "finishing charge" in just a couple hours. But, apparently it's really too toast. Bummer.

So we decided to put the rest of the dock in instead. Even in a wetsuit, standing around in 66 degree water for an hour and a half is hypothermia-inducing. We had more than the usual trouble with getting the darn thing leveled and squared, and didn't manage to finish. The final bit will be less work than today, but it was annoying we didn't finish. We were just too cold. So, hot showers and sitting around reading under a blanket for the rest of the day...

It's going to be in the 50's for the next two days. This will not improve the lake temperature. Where's global warming when you need it?
