I had the day off and I needed to be on the water. It was 6:00 a.m. and the temperature was 83 degrees. I knew it would get worse later in the day. It had been this way for two weeks. I loaded the canoe the night before along with everything else.
I arrived at one of my favorite ponds for the first time this year. I can see that the water is down about two feet, that is the effect of no rain and hot dry winds.
