Corrine and I went up early to check conditions. All the roads were fine, and it was 34 degrees. But, the parking lot was terrible, 4-wheel drive only!! We called everyone, and told them it was a go. We had planned on eating at the Stained Glass, but it was closed, so we headed to the Chat & Chew. We arrived back at the lake just before the others only to discover that there were two other divers gearing up in the parking lot. It had started snowing lightly, but just a light breeze. We set up the canopy, put the walls on it, and set up the stoves for soup, chili, and hot chocalate. Everyone started to gear up, and get wet. Just as Corrine and I were getting ready a large gust blew up and picked up the canopy and deposited it on our heads. It didn't hurt us, but it knocked my tanks off of the tailgate onto the ground. Which resulted in one bent valve, and a destroyed canopy!! Still it was a great day, and a good dive. By the time we were leaving, the temp had dropped to 24 degrees, and it was snowing heavily. We had a great day, 6 of us went up, and 5 of us dove. Mary was surface support, and it was great having someone hand us hot chocalate when we had dropped our tanks. THANKS MARY!!
