Well almost all in. The ice went out on Tuesday. This afternoon we got the doack and lift in. Not the boat yet. Water was painfully cold. But wetsuit with dive booties made it very tolerable. Did not have to get wet past my chest so that was not so bad. We are talking about snow again tonight.

Don't want to hassle with re-winterizing. Possible 6 inches of snow in the next two days. Spring is losing the battle.

hopefully we'll get a stable weather pattern soon- snow in april definitely sucks

ice here has been off the lake since early march but the wind has been horrible- I'm willing to be cold in order to ski but not if the wind is blowing 30 mph

Yeah - if its cold it better be dead calm...

Man I really feel bad for you!! It's going to be mid 80's here tomorrow, and I've got no one to ski with!!! Hang in there. I remember the days when I lived in Pittsburgh skiing the week between Christmas and New Years, we even got in the newspaper the one year! Man it was cold and drysuits totally suck!!! Hang in there , spring will get there eventually, in the meantime drive south.

ptcbtcher- was down in your neck of the woods last week. Man... sweet area. Spent most of the time on Lake Norman as the condo we were in was right on it, but Weds morning went down to Mountain Island Lake and it's awesome. Put in up at the ramp off of Neck Rd. and went downstream a little before going back up. Was a little worried about the channel but followed a fisherman through and made it up river - it's beautiful and perfect for skiing! Except chilly for no wetsuit.... water was 56. Also- fisherman seemed real friendly... tried waving to a few who stared as we idled by - not even skiing - but got no response... tools.

Where are you in relation to that ramp?
