The Highland Lakes are warming up fast; too fast for me. While the LCRA reports that the water temperature was 72 degrees this morning at the surface of Lake Travis near Mansfield Dam, it’s much warmer at the upper end of Lake Travis. It looks as though it will be too hot for me to swim there soon.
With all the warm weather we’ve had and have been getting lately, I’m pretty sure we will hit our highest water temperature for The Money Box Cap 2k this year. I’m guessing it will be in the mid 70s. Too warm for me, but probably wonderful for most of the entrants.
