It’s pretty bad that you have to wait for WINTER in order to have some hope of a hot, sunny day. On the other hand, if you’re a big fan of mud, Grundy Lake is the place for you. It felt like we were sitting on a giant pottery wheel – clay and mud everywhere. Some puddles have never dried up. We were getting a tan, somehow, until we figured out that it was just rust.
How wet was it? For the first time in our memory, they cancelled 155 reservations because the lots were underwater, in early July. Some people had up to eight skids on their lots, just so they could walk around.
We had a few days of sunshine and sort of warmer weather, but mostly we’d get a couple of days of sunshine followed by several days of rain and/or cold. Normally, I would swim every day and there was a stretch where I swam 5 days in a row. However, in August I’ve been down to one or two swims a week. My svelte, swimmer’s body is taking a beating.
A highlight was when our cousin Carmen and her partner Ted came out and brought our Uncle Pete. Stupidly, we forgot to take a picture. It sure was nice to see them and we had a great afternoon visit. Also on a sunny day.
