A muggy one on Monday with the temperature in the mid 80s and the humidity almost as high. Any physical activity resulted in being drenched in sweat. Several periods of rain and thunderstorms passed by, the heaviest of which was around the lunch hour. They say that Tuesday will be similar with a fairly high chance of severe thunderstorms later in the day. The morning news showed such storms already forming to the west of here. The good news is that drier air should move in tonight and the rest of this week looks to be gorgeous. Sunshine and temperatures near 80F each day for the rest of the week.
The annual Limerick Lodge licensed event will take place on Saturday evening, August 15th. Already confirmed with Derek Morris that he will be here to play. No theme this year. Just happy to be here and able to have a party. The permit is for 45 people, 100% outdoors, and there will be a cash bar. We will have lots of room to spread out around the lawn. Tickets for the party ($10) to keep track of the 45 attendees are now available for purchase. As of Tuesday the 11th there are still plenty of tickets available.
The Perseids meteor shower peaks this week. Up to 100 meteorites per hour are visible for the next few days. Great fun for outdoor viewing in the dark of cottage country.
The launch ramp at the marina has controlled access to the lake this year. After careful consideration regarding the introduction of invasive species it is no longer advisable to have open access for launching boats. Launch ramp hours are the same as the store hours. After hours launch appointments can be made. There is a power water wash station in the upper parking lot (near the Tesla charging station) utilizing Virkon Aquatic viricide for boats that have been in other waters. Boats that have only ever been in the Limerick chain of lakes can launch without needing to be washed. The wash station is easy to use. Having the ramp closed is a bit of a hassle, but the process has met with 100% acceptance. Thank you to everyone for your support to keep our lakes invasive species free.
