Our lake is so beautiful and appealing that it’s easy to forget how dangerous it is. Typically, it’s peaceful-like and seldom has dangerous-looking waves.
Yet tragically unnecessary deaths occur on the Lake each year. Strollers drift off the concrete apron. Distraught mothers drive off into it on frigid nights. Inner-city kids looking to get cool plunge into it on hot summer days, never to be seen again. Boozy sailors, taken off guard by a sudden weather change, find themselves in the drink. . . . The stories are many.
Every year, we see the emergency vehicles gathered on the beach, and we know what it means.
