A sad reminder of how unforgiving the water can be this time of year. 36 degree water, wind gusts of over 40mph, and no life jackets appear to be the contributing factors. Please be careful out there folks.

"A man died at Lone Star Lake just before 1 p.m. Saturday after falling into the frigid lake.

The 67-year-old man from Illinois was in a small fishing boat with a 46-year-old man from Eudora. Douglas County was under a wind advisory until 4 p.m. Saturday, and wind gusts were reported up to 40 mph. The strong wind caused high waves that began to fill their boat with water, said Kari Wempe, the Douglas County Sheriff’s spokeswoman.

“The boat went down quickly,” she said."
