All week our daytime temps are in the mid 20’s or better. Feeling a lot like summer!
Stick your toe in though, and only the most hardy will take it much further. The water’s still in a state of spring. Those warm days we mentioned above are only half the story. The other half, the night time half, is what’s keeping us from being sincere when we say, ‘Come on in! The water’s fine!’ Instead of chattering it through blue lips and locked jaw.
For the first time this year, night time temps remain in double digits for the rest of the week. The daytime heat sink, we call the lake, won’t be heating the night sky. It will be able to retain warmth. Water temps are on the rise!
This past week the number of lakefront properties selling was also on the rise. So much so that for one couple we’ve been working with, both properties they came north to see sold conditionally the day they saw them. The hard part is they’ve been looking for quite some time. Find something you like? Go for it or someone else will.
