I've always driven past there and figured it was really deep until I saw some lady standing and adjusting her goggles out there. Who knew!

swimming at the lake has to be so much more difficult than a pool.

It's not that bad to be honest. Lately there has been very little chop, and the water is surprisingly clean, MUCH better tasting than a pool. Maybe it's the E coli I like so much. Mmmmm. The biggest thing is sighting so you don't swim into the middle of the lake.

Over 7 inches in two hours, 6 hours of storms total, lots of flooding in Mil, and you know what that means - more cheesehead poo heading your way!

(It's not just that we dump the sewage, it's that currents send it all to Chicago. You're welcome.)

Well, it looks like X is going to have to move all his swim training to open water somewhere for the next few weeks, since the lower level (where the pool, locker rooms, and b-ball courts are) of our gym was under a few feet of water last night.

Hey a little poo never hurt anybody. X should be practicing in open water anyways. I know it helped me quite a bit to get comfortable with sighting and waves.

He was planning on it for weekends, but we're not in a convenient place for him to do it during his regular AM training.
