I disagree. It seems to me that ice out is getting later over time. However that observation is anecdotal and not scientific.
I'm hoping my graph can be seen here. I took the Ice-Out dates from the historical list and calculated the average Ice-out date for each 10 period, starting with 1887-1896, and so on. It certainly shows a long term trend towards earlier and earlier ice outs.
