We checked the weather forecast when I got back and the wind was suppose to subside. Storms were in the forecast but not until after 7:00 pm. So we headed up the road to pick up some minnows for fishing and we headed out about 3:30. It was overcast with barely a breeze so we anchored and fished for a little better than an hour. The breeze increased just a little and we could the clouds starting to form in the south. In less than 10 minutes the breeze changed to a strong wind and there were white caps on the water. We made it back to camp, but the winds were so strong that a couple of the guys came down to help us get the boat to the dock.
And the picture below tells the rest of the story. It got dark fast..........and the islands that we can normally see from the cabin were lost in the rain and mist over the lake. You could barely see the boats at the dock - but you could hear them rocking. The yard was full of water and the waterfall that had dried up over the past week, looked like a small creek! Needless to say - One hour of fishing today. BUT we did manage to add 2 Fish to our total. Total now is at 96!
A bit of a cold front came in over night and the weather today.......Wednesday. The temperature is in the mid 60's and Rich is in long pants and a jacket!!! The winds are supposed to be anywhere from 13-17 miles/hour today - so the chances of getting out today don't look too good!
