Re: Aug 1 Lake Superior Water Temp!

=== This year in Lake Superior life jackets are used so the body can be located and you can be declared deceased. This means your heirs don't have to wait 5 or 7 years to get the inheritance ===

I bet you don't see that in any ad copy. I can see it now......

"Make sure your heirs don't have to wait! Use our new CFD, "Cadavar Flotation Device"!!! Comes in many designer colors!!! Automatic beacon activation cause we KNOW you ain't gonna do it!!!

Seriously, I dove in some cold water at the Straights of Mackinac. The wreck Sandusky is about 85' down. Thermoclime is about 65'. Below that you can't tell the boys from the girls. Dry suits would be preferred and there I was with a 7mil wetsuit. I'm a hefty guy - I did OK. My slim son froze. Still a great dive.

There is one evolutionary advantage: increase in brain size due to a challenging Ice Age environment as opposed to those who dwelled on the temperate savannah.

Winter makes one appreciate summer all the more.

No insects after first frost
Snowmobiles
Skiing
Ice Fishing
Sharing body heat - "Tuning Tokyo" game is much more fun
Saunas/Hot tubs with a roll in the snow sometime during
Hot Chocolate or coffee with booze
Sledding behind trucks with rope
Wood fireplaces
Flasks are the norm - guy has to stay warm somehow

The list could go on and on....
