Hey folks, anybody else off work today besides me?
Just poured here, 50 % it may clear later ... lakes questionable :rolleyes:

So what are your plans for the 4th of July?

I am right down the road in Johns Creek watching it rain and wishing it would stop. Almost thinking of going anyway. This is the only time there won't be 1,000 maniacs on Lanier on the 4th!!

Same in SC, may have to dart out between showers. Hopefully tomorrow will be better.:)

It's pouring down here in TN and no sign of it breaking up till tomorrow afternoon. Just sitting around wishing it was sunny!

Just finished cleaning up the boat after a 3 hr ski/wakeboard/kneeboard with the family. Saw 5 yahoos at the ramp loading up 100+ beers heading out for wakeboarding -- what could possibly go wrong.

It was still pretty busy this morning/afternoon even at the north end of Lanier. Some people only use their boats 3x a year so rain won't deter them.

I'm stuck on call - nothing so far today - but really haven't been able to go do anything but putter around my place.

Found a break in the weather to celebrate The United States of America's birthday on the water. @Norris Lake

I was only able to put my pontoon with new interior in the lake to take it to the boathouse in between monsoon rainstorms. My S+S is at the shop for work while I am on vacay far away in Jamaica. We did get to slurp some adult beverages amid a lively conversation! Today is not looking good either, so more adult beverages and home cooked BBQ. Luckily my son makes incredibly good pork in the smoker. Mine never equals his.

The start of our 4th.... Lake was not nearly as nuts as feared.

Headed out early yesterday. Forecast was for rain but it held off. Had the entire lake to myself except for 3 other fishermen. Best day on the water so far this year! Picnic at the neighbors in the PM.

VP46, cool pic. I almost thought it was a wrap for a second. I sure wish my boat shined like that.

What lake? Looks like you had a "full pool"!

Finally enjoying the evening. Sitting in the boat with a beer listening to the stereo. Maybe tomorrow I can enjoy it outside on the water. For now in the garage out of the rain will have to do.

Jenkinson in pollock pines, ca

Lake actually is bout 10 feet off from full pool.

Small, warm, and around the corner from the in laws... It is our regular lake.



The reflection caught me too! I detailed the interior this winter... Probably should pay some attention to the gel coat!

Rained nearly the whole day on the 4th here. We finally got a break late in the day and I got on my buddies X30 and did a little surfing and got a couple runs in on the Sky Ski behind my boat. Today was overcast all day and a bit windy, but I will take that over rain, so we made due.
