Hank Golden and his
grandson are about to become two brave souls when they drop their boat in the
frigid waters of Lake Martin.
It's sunny but very cold
and they know it.
prepared. We got our coats. We're used to it," said Golden of Tallassee.
Overall, the month of
March has been nothing to celebrate for Bekah Hepburn. Hepburn runs a little
shopping strip near the lake and says business is down between 5 to 10%
compared to last March.
"Good weather is
crucial for us. If it rains no one wants to be on the water and if it's cold no
one wants to be out," Hepburn said.
On the lake Scott Goslin
says March is the month many schools take their spring breaks including
universities. The gas pumps are quiet along with the boat motors. The only
churning the water these days are the ducks and the wind.
"Overall traffic is
down about 5% but we haven't seen any drop in sales," said Goslin who is
the Merchandise Manager for Russell Marina on Lake Martin.
Even though the month of
March has been so-so compared to last March, businesses say the real show
begins Memorial Day weekend, the beginning of summer vacation.
It's clear many people
are waiting a little longer for the temperature to rise and become more
consistent, not waiting are the Goldens who decided to the take the plunge now.
