    Water temp for closing?

    Hello all!

    I'm sure this has been covered in other posts, but I don't feel like searching all I know that the water should be on the cool side before you close for the winter, but what is the ideal range for the temp?
    I want to close shortly, but my water temp is still fluctuating in low to mid 70s..I think that may be too warm to close?
