New 2018 trash

And some hardy souls too as the air temp was 29 with a 10mph wind from the north….burrrrrr. indeed!

But even with those conditions we had a crowd!!!

And if you look close you can see the white caps behind Susan…who was also smart to dress in layers too!

And it never hurts to have some food for energy….and today we were treated to Karen’s awesome hot hatch Chile and chicken  chowder…mm mm good!

In fact it was so spicy good Reddy had to delayer just to chill out!

And yes it was cold on the water too…in fact there were several areas of lake effect ice too

And sadly one of my dreaded fear came true today too…we extracted some rather large trash from the lake

Yup look low and left in this photo…it’s a ride share bike…in fact we pulled 3 as in Three from the water on just our section of shoreline

So how do we get the message out to all 5 of the bike sharing groups….

I’m not sure but after a decade of removing lake trash…I sure hope we figure this out…just a thought…we need less trash…not more!

So that the view early am off 9f Jackson point….below is a view from the far side too out of the wind

Thanks for all our support and volunteers who braved the conditions to help us help the lake!

Join us in February on the 2nd Saturday 9am to 12 noon at Jackson Point!
