Ohio Street, October 6

Our swim was delayed while we waited at home for a storm to pass through the Loop. We finally got in the water at 8:00 AM instead of our usual 6:30. Jody was right, there was no trouble parking, we got the best spot at the end of Ohio St. The usual runners and bikers were resting for tomorrow's marathon. But it was worth the wait, water was nearly flat, 4 inch swells, 2 inch ripples. The water was 64.2 degrees with air int the upper 60's. The sun even came out at the end. There were two other swimmers, both in full wetsuits. We went to the orange poles and back for what will almost certainly be my last Ohio St. swim, at least for the season. A good way to end this season on a high note.
