    Mt Storm Dive Conditions

    Conditions as of Tuesday 26 April 11:

    Mt. Storm dive conditions - Our first trip to the Storm this season to finish our Public Safety Diver Course. We had 2'-3' seas, water temps were 64*F down to about 30' with no noticeable thermocline and visibility in the 4'-5' range. Still a little chilly for wet diving but the dry suit made it plenty nice. The "seas" as I describe them, really were ocean like. Rolling waves coming in sets with surge that pounded the shore. I had never seen them quite like that at the Storm.

    A series of unrecognized mistakes does not constitute experience.

    I'm a NMOF and proud of it.

    I was there 11 May and the water temps were 70*F down to about 30' and the vis was about 6' to 8'. Things are looking up. We were going up there today but the forecast was 80% chance of thunderstorms and a high of 69*F so we opted out and rescheduled for next Saturday.

    Some of our friends went anyway and turns out it was beautiful up there today.....stupid weather man. :O) They reported 72*F water temps.

    Storm is going backwards. Today the water temperature was 68*F to 70*F at the surface and definitely 68*F at depth down to about 55'. The vis was bad due to lots of classes moving around. We did one dive after the classes packed up and left and the silt clouds were gone of course but it was still pretty dark and gloomy, even though the sun was out. I think Mother Nature is gong to have to start helping us out a little bit more than she has been. At least the water was calm.

    Dove Mt. Storm today, water temperature was a balmy 74*F. These few warm days have made a big difference. :O)

    necklinsberg it was nice to see you at Mt Storm yesterday!!! it's always good to put a face to an avatar.

    someone has been busy over the winter.... 4 ft flamingo near the computer platform... new concrete fern decoration where the microwave was... microwave has deteriorated quite a bit. we will probably take it out this summer. there are too many sharp edges on it. new cupid sitting and holding a frog on the north platform. oh a couple of super hero figurines...one on the motorcycle and one in the pumpkin tree... we fed zebra mussels to the catfish..... all in all a great day to dive!!!
