  It depends
  Posted by: old_user on Jul-05-11 11:47 AM (EST)

Around here in Colorado, the rule is to get off high mountain peaks by early afternoon because by 3pm thunderstorms will be coming in and all hell will be breaking loose up there. I follow that advice. If I was paddling on a high mountain lake, I would do the same thing. Predicted thunderstorms don't usually stop me from paddling on low elevation rivers.
However, I have no objective data to support the wisdom of these decisions. It's probably safer to hide in my basement but I don't.
