I realize that the weather has begun warming up and that spring itself is not far away however when Ralph Jr decided to go swimming at one of the many lakes around here I seriously think that he was definitely jumping the gun just a bit.
I mean think about it. The air temperatures have indeed been rising lately and I’m among the first to notice and welcome this change however just because the air is warmer means nothing to the water temperatures. Water takes a lot longer to warm up than air does and not even a whole truckload of raypak pool heaters is going to add enough heat to a lake to make it even remotely close to almost thinking about being warm enough to do something crazy like go swimming in it.
This is, in my opinion, right up there with those industrial strength nutcases who decide to cut a hole in the ice and take a dip in a frozen over lake in like January or something. They’re just asking for heart attacks or worse.
