Winter is marching towards us, storms drawn. We’re looking at some weather over the next few days that will hopefully leave a nice white blanket. The first system is set to move in tomorrow, brining rain to lake level. By Thursday, we’re hoping temperatures will drop and that rain will turn to snow. But it’s always up to Mother Nature.
By the weekend, we should see sunny conditions return and likely some more great fall paddling. Of course, the mornings are typically the glassiest, but watch out for ice. Keep an eye out for the Morning Report or check out the webcam for current conditions.
Last week, there were a few good days, but you had to be opportunistic. Luckily, there was a lot more going on to keep us busy. City officials and business owners, including STSUP’s SUP-E-O Chris Brackett celebrated the Harrison Avenue Project with a ribbon cutting. The project has made the area a lot more pedestrian friendly. Congratulations on a job well done!
Similar to last week, there aren’t too many events to keep an eye on. New Zealand will host more races, as it’s moving into their summer. The U.K. has a series called the Frostbite Series. And, of course, Florida will continue to put on races.
There isn’t too much news to report this week. Joshua Brackett hit the big 13 yesterday. A few new Brackett family photos show how much everyone is growing up. We’re all gearing up for Thanksgiving and, of course, we’ll have more on that next week.
This week I have to post a video of my dream wave, Peru’s Chicama. It’s supposedly the longest left-hand wave in the world. As a goofy footer, I need to check this one off my list.
