Beautiful Saturday, Even Nicer Sunday

Quick Boat Trip
We made it up to 62° for a high today and expect temperatures to reach near 70° for your Sunday here in Cookeville.  After a chilly overnight, sunny skies and a light, southerly wind will make the day especially nice on Sunday. Rain returns by Tuesday night after a couple of days near 70° on Monday and Tuesday.

My wife and I spent last night on my family's houseboat, GREAT ESCAPE, which is docked at Center Hill Marina (commonly called 'Cove Hollow'). It was quiet and peaceful night with only a few folks on the dock.
