Beautiful Memorial Day! (Be safe!)

Wow! What a weekend so far!

The is nicest weather for memorial day weekend in many years. I was out on Owasco Lake the past two days and can't believe all the folks who are out on the water. I even went for a swim saturday, a little cool (a passing boater said it was around 68F), but very refreshing with the air temperatures in the 80's.

I did want to make a comment about safety on the water. There are lots of people out in boats, kayaks, jet ski's etc. Make sure you safety gear is all on board and that young people are WEARING life jackets. Please use caution, most people are just getting on the water for the first time this season and may not be at their peak boating potential.

One other CAUTION to those who may be on Owasco after dark: The lighted point marker buoys HAVE NOT been installed yet! Please use extreme caution until they are placed. Hopefully NYS will be out very soon to remedy this situation.

Lastly, Please take a moment to reflect on this very important holiday. Memorial Day is an opportunity to honor those who have given their lives for freedom as well as those who have served in all of the armed services.

Well get out and enjoy this beautiful day!

Have fun and be safe! - Lakeman
