First seiche of 2012!

Today around 6:30 p.m. a seche happened at the shore. It went on for almost an hour – that’s the longest we’ve ever seen. This was an impressive seche but I still remember the very first one we saw in 1996.   Here is one description off the web – “A movement of fresh water, usually in a lake, that resembles somewhat, a tidal movement in salt water. This is a rare happening, and does not last long. It is usually associated with strong winds.”   We know that the wind part is not really true – almost always we’ve seen seches when its extremely calm.

There was a small amount of wind today. We took some pics – enjoy!
