THE ICE IS GONE
True to form and as has typically happened over the years, the ice is now gone from our part of the lake. It is just incredible, regardless what the weather has been like, how regular its departure has been. Last night Julia and I, along with two of our guests, went out in canoes to check out what remained of the ice. We pretended to be ice breakers but some flows were still too thick to do anything. With the wind shifting these massive sheets of ice around we had to be extra careful not to get hemmed in. By this morning, April 19th, it was all gone!
