I've since swum semi-regularly in that small lake with Willie. The water temp is now above 60. I also swam 2.5k in the Hudson River last Sunday (Mother's Day) with a group of 7, as a test swim on the course of the 2 Bridges under the Walkway event, which will be June 2. This is in Poughkeepsie between the Mid Hudson Bridge and Walkway over the Hudson. Water was 57 that day. Friday (May 18) I swam in the Allegheny River in Pittsburgh with about a dozen members of the Pittsburgh Triathlon Club. Water about 62. Will swim in the Allegheny again this afternoon with a smaller group. This time it will be downtown, fairly close to where it joins the Monongehela to form the Ohio River. Quite scenic there.
I hope the sky lakes in New Paltz don't warm up too fast.
Tab, where is your lake?
