SNAKE !!! You got to love those things. I was near a discharge & saw one near the bank in the water, I guess it wanted to meet me, because it came up right under me Weather looked funny 40% chance of thunderstorms, etc. Saw storms blowing up around me, moved to avoid them. Got caught on the edge of a bad one, I was in rain, but could see sheets of rain about 300 yds away from me, only lasted 5 minutes. The wind became an issue pretty quick with 2-3' whitecap rollers blowing UPSTREAM For those of you who don't understand, that means no stable anchoring, the boat blows back upstream & all over the place. It died down about the time I had to come off around 5 PM.
