    72 degrees Monday at Lake Cumberland.  Docks don't go in for 2 more weeks.  We are heading down for the golfing weather this weekend.  It is the downside of the I/O.  Can not take the chance of a warm weather boat trip before end of winter.

    We had boats and jet skis out on our lake this weekend. A neighbor a few houses down from us even put his jet ski out on the lift for the season.


    I was out in the yard both days this weekend getting a play set built for the little guy and making some repairs to the grass at my seawall. Got a sunburn.

    I'm thinking the winter cover is going to come off the boat this weekend. I'll get the moth balls and damp rid out, put the bimini and snap in carpets back in. Winter is over and the lake is almost up to full pool. We need a dancing emoji!!!

    We have an incompetent drain commissioner who dropped our lake level again... So the wait continues. I did get out on the boat though.

    Just the opposite on Lake Fenton where the water is over the docks. I've heard there are a bunch of beavers that plugged up the weirs that regulate the lake level and of course it takes forever for any government body to make an adult decision or do anything productive about it. Incompetence all around.  :angry:

    That will make the canal beteeen the north and south section nicer!! Hopefully we get some rain Wednesday and Thursday for my sake. I was thinking about going up there on Saturday with the boat but it was too windy. 


    No tv on the boat for us Dave!!!!
