This summer’s wacky weather is keeping residents out of the area’s frigid waters.
“There’s hardly anyone here, most days,” said Michael Raiger, a lifeguard at Canatara Beach. “People just aren’t going in the water; and if they do, they’re not in there for long.”
Environment Canada pegged southern Lake Huron at a cool, 64 degrees, Tuesday. This time last year, the temperature was nearly 72 degrees.
