New thermo noted at 2pm for sea temperature.  Temperature now 6 degrees higher.  No explanation in log book. Sea temps had seemed rather low for the last day or so.

It happens around here (Western Lake Ontario, US/Canada - South Shore) somewhat often in the summer. The lake is very deep and if we get a good East wind it will run over 400mi (480km) of lake and 'flip' the lower, colder layer up. Lake surface temps along the shore can go 70 to 40F (21 - 4 C) in a few minutes!! Gets us some REAL interesting fogs when we are out sailing!!

On August 29th, 1889, Jamestown switched to an aneroid barometer at 10 am:

This seems to last at least until the end of the logbook (October 12th) - the barometer column isn't always explicitly marked as aneroid, but I think we can assume it was like that the whole time.

EDIT: I checked the next log, and it's still aneroid on October 14th: https://oldweather.s3.amazonaws.com/ow3/final/USS%20Jamestown/vol062of067/vol062of067_010_0.jpg
Will keep an eye out for any more changes when I get to that log.
