Lake Maumelle 12/7/2008

I worked the Southern & Western Rest Areas and the bay in between this morning. I arrived at about 8:30 and the temperature was in the mid-30s and it was perfectly clear and sunny. It did not take long for the lake to suck all heat from my hands. My feet were okay in my two pair of socks and new insulated waterproof (I hope) calf half boots and the rest of me too but the hands needed more than the fingerless gloves that I had. Of the three spots, the SRA was the busiest. Left at 10 AM.
