Nature’s big show started about 2 am, accompanied by lots of lightning, thunder, rain and wind. About three-quarters of an inch of rain fell around Clark Lake. Other than a few branches down, there doesn’t appear to be evidence of damage. The temperature dropped to 69 degrees overnight and by noon was back up to 77 degrees. Water temp cooled to 73 degrees.
Perhaps this kind of weather is over for now, and that will clear the way for a great holiday weekend. This Independence holiday includes the Fleet 58 Reunion and Regatta on Sunday. Over the last few days several Hobies have been spotted on the lake, out for a practice run. And Hobies that haven’t seen the water for a while are coming out of storage. Some are being revived–being pieced together–to once again to go into action and compete for Fleet 58 glory. Check out details on the event on the main page of this website.
