    OK I am really itching to go diving... I have a two piece 6.5mm (Farmer john and shorty,) wet suit, hood, gloves and boots...

    Now I hear that Circleville is 52 degrees...

    Am I going to freeze if I go diving tomorrow?

    52° F? I'd do it in a heartbeat.

    That's almost toasty in a 6.5mm. Have a great dive!

    That's not bad for a 6.5mm and the air temps you'll have at the surface, and the water temp is sure warmer than the 45F at Gilboa and the 41F at Joes Quarry the past couple of weeks!!

    You should be able to get down to about 45* in a 2 piece suit.

    I did Circleville in a 7mm farmer john a in february under 8 inches of ice. One nice thing about circleville is the suit doesn't compress much at shallow depths so you'll be fine. If you go let me know.
