Sudden Change in Weather

Fog, clouds and wind at the end of our morning swim.

I woke up at about 2am this morning to the wind and rain and worried that it was going to keep us from swimming this morning.  Luckily by the time I got up again at 5am, things had calmed down and I drove up to Jordanelle to meet Karl, Lisa and Eric.

I wondered if the water would be any cooler after the two rain storms, but it was still 72 degrees.  Lisa and I swam out to the end of the buoys and turned around.  She and I swim at a similar pace, which is nice because I usually get left alone somewhere in the middle of the pack.  On our way back we ran into Karl and Eric and then two other swimmers near the boat ramp.  It's getting to be a popular place to swim.

I wanted to do 2 miles or so but on the way back to the boat ramp I felt myself being pushed slightly to shore.  When Lisa and I stopped at the last buoy and looked to the south, we saw fog and clouds rolling it.  It actually looked pretty cool and I stopped to take some photos.  The wind started to pick up and I decided to call it a day.  In retrospect, I should have stuck it out because by the time we got back to our cars, it was totally calm again.

Those are great pictures. Makes me want to haul my butt out of bed and meet up, one of these days!
