For those who may be familiar with it, there is a large reservoir in Waltham MA, near the intersection of Rts 95/128 & 2. Yesterday it was still fully ice covered. Today there were large open areas and most of the ice had been blown into coves by the wind. I expect it will all be gone tomorrow.
Yup, right in my backyard... Literally. The "Res" is quickly turning back to water. I've never timed out winni ice-out correlated to the reservoir ice-out occurring. I would assume it wouldn't have much correlation as the climate can actually be fairly dramatically different.
