We had some pretty nasty algae forming on the lake after I started up the aeration. It looked so bad I called Esshup asking if I should keep running or not. He told me to aerate as much as possible and we would eventually push through. It made it hard to look at the lake everyday. Difficult to watch it go from beautiful to pretty much disgusting looking. The stuff never covered the entire surface of the lake. The wind would mostly keep it blown to one end.

In the 10 days before I left we had gotten 4.5" of rain and I have been told that it has done at least the same up there over the last two weeks. I got my buddy to increase the duration on the timer one hour so we are now aerating for 7 hours per day. Hope this stuff is cleared up by the time I get back up there in September.
