I spent the day on a beautiful little lake, the clearest lake I have seen in our management area. I would definitely go scuba diving there, if I had a lot of time for recreation. But I was not there for recreation, I was there for business. Vegetation sampling business.
It would have been a great day, had it not been so windy. So whitecap-inducing, hat-blowing windy. There was a cold front moving in, and it produced 30 mph gusts or more. Luckily the lake was small enough. We sampled vegetation where we could, and even ran into a couple of unfamiliar species. But having to drop and pull an anchor at every spot, as well as throwing this double headed rake sampler thingie and pulling it in, laden with weeds, made me kind of achy after a while. What? This is my job, I'm not supposed to whine about it? Oh well. It pays the bills.
And the wind has this effect on me. As soon as I arrived home, I was dog tired. Didn't want to move a muscle. We had frozen pizzas for dinner (locally produced, so at least that's something). I'm dozing off now.
