    Hopefully at the Lake
  1. I will leave my political thoughts out of this opinion but I will say I am not a fan of mandated mask usage. A basic cloth mask is not and has never been shown as an effective form of protection form a virus (until the last few months). All they do is protect you from coughing or sneezing on someone and allow people to virtue signal. I do not wear one unless I have to go somewhere that will not let me in without it (like Kroger). Wear a mask if you want, just leave me alone if I don't. I promise not to cough or sneeze on anyone.
  2. We were out cruising around yesterday afternoon and went by Jamestown Marina. I saw 6 women get off a bow rider and every one put a mask on as soon as they stepped on the dock. That was a first for me this year. As usual, no one had a mask on at the Ramp or our marina (Pleasant Hill).
  3. Hmmm, seems like little Andy will be making new proclamations today or tomorrow. I hope it doesn't crush businesses like this that are likely barely hanging on.
  4. Good to hear it was a good show. The show in Lexington was pretty good as well. I am surprised that you are surprised about the usage of masks. I have not seen one mask on the dock, lake, or ramp this year. I have rarely seen one used in Jamestown unless it was a waiter or someone at work. To be completely honest, I never wear one unless it cannot be avoided. I try to stay social distant (I have been practicing all my life for that skill ) as often as possible and wash my hands frequently but the mask is a bridge too far for me. It does nothing to protect me and very little to protect anyone else.
  5. https://www.kentucky.com/news/state/kentucky/article243338481.html Sad and hard to believe that two males in their twenties could not solve this problem and live to tell the tale. Of course not every male in their twenties is fit or a good swimmer. Naturally there is also the chance that large amounts of alcohol were involved. If you're gonna swim away from the boat, wear a life jacket or at least have a cushion/raft/noodle with you.
  6. Well it appeared to be the normal chaos of every holiday weekend at the lake. The biggest difference I saw was in Russell Springs and Jamestown. None of the restaurants seem to have reopened their dining rooms and were continuing to close early. I have to think a lot of money was missed there. The ramp at PH was worse than normal since there was not enough space to turn around at the bottom and because the normal parking for golf carts and side by sides was under water. It was entertaining watching a lot of 24' plus boats being backed all the way down the hill. I did not see one mask in use at the marina or ramp. The only place I saw any masks were Kroger and food servers.
  7. So for anyone still checking this place, what changes have you seen at the lake due to little Andy's orders? I have seen fewer people for sure over the last 2 months. There have been fewer people at their cottages, on the ramp, and at the marina. However those I have seen at the ramp or marina have been acting like there is nothing new. They have not been doing any "social distancing" and I have not seen one mask, pair of gloves, or bottle of hand sanitizer in use. As we have finally started to get warmer weekends and everyone has become tired of Andy's dictates, I have seen more traffic on the ramp and the marina has more boats sitting on the lifts but it is still noticeably less busy that in years past. Last weekend, less than half our slips (Pleasant Hill) had boats. Normally, 95% of the slips are in use by now. Is it this way everywhere on the lake? I have to imagine it will be busy this weekend at least since it is a holiday and I really believe most people have had their fill of "Healthy at Home".
  8. I have not checked the forum for months and wonder why I did this time. Anybody want to publish and over/under on how long it's up this time?
  9. This site seems to be someone's failed aspirations right now. Hopefully it will get some love from the owner sometime soon or just be put out of it's misery. As it has been for the last year or so, you never know if the site is hacked, updated, or just drifting in the wind. Eventhough there were not that many users a few years ago, I liked it and checked the forums regularly. Now I just use it to see the lake level and maybe look at a web cam. Lord knows the lakecumberland.com domain could be a money maker but it would take some effort.
  10. I agree with you both. It is insane that there is no communication about the site. Whoever runs this thing needs to either announce a final date and kill it on that date or actually maintain it and keep it running correctly. They could also just sell it to me for $1. I will make it my retirement hobby.
  11. So has it really been dead for over a year or was it just my browser issues?
  12. I have seen a number of copperheads and timber rattlers in KY over the years. Luckily I have only had one occasion where I could not avoid them. My RA freshman year at UK had been bitten by a copperhead somewhere at Red River Gorge a few weeks before the semester started. I recall his ankle being bad for months.
  13. That sounds like something my wife would enjoy. Thank you for posting it.
  14. Saw a report of a drowning near Bronston on the news last night. Not sure if this is what you are referring to. WKYT News Story
  15. While I enjoy a good spectacle as much as the next guy, going into a relatively small area with that many boats, people, and alcohol is just not my thing.
