Important weather conditions and water conditions are available from a large network of buoys on the Great Lakes. You can get the info with just a quick text. Unlike some of your kids, if you text a buoy it will always text you right back.
There are 57 buoys across all of the Great Lakes. The network of buoys is deployed and maintained by the Great Lakes Observing System (GLOS), NOAA, universities and LimnoTech.

Location of the buoys on the Great Lakes
 Each buoy is identified with a five digit identifier number. For example, the Ludington, MI buoy is 45024. The buoy numbers are in the far left column here.
GLOS added seven new phone numbers to handle our texts for buoy info. Text the ID number of the buoy to (734) 201-0750. You will immediately get a text back with wind speed and direction, air and surface water temperature and wave height.

Lake temps

The Lake Erie water temperature is taken at the Buffalo Water Treatment Plant located on Lake Erie at the entrance to the Niagara River.  The reading is taken at a depth of 30 feet. Lake Erie temperature updated : April 18, 2013

The Lake Ontario water temperature is taken at the Monroe county water treatment plant near Greece, N.Y. The temperatures is measured at the intake pipes about 1500 feet offshore at a approximate depth of 35 feet. The Lake Ontario temperature occasionally may not be representative of the surface temperature due to upwelling. This process, more common during the summer months, brings colder water from the deeper parts of the lake toward the surface near the temperature sensor. The surface water may be significantly warmer.
