Default What a difference!

Three years ago today, March 23, 2012, Ice-Out was declared. As of this morning, we're still making ice!!!

With this weather it will be May 23 this year! Oh no it can't be because the Mount has a mother's day cruise

...and yesterday while eating dinner at the Lyons Den bar, I was watching trucks coming off the ice with reports of 20+" of ice still in the broads!

Last year I ate my words thinking ice out would be very late when it wasn't. This year I am not going to say it but...

Last year the ice was still very thick and a week of mild temps destroyed the ice very quickly, amazingly fast, as I remember.
I keep looking at Lily Pond and thinking it will be a very late ice out. I thought the same thing last year.
Mother Nature seems to always average things out.
The lake is still hasn't started to rise, but it will this week with milder temps. Water temp 32.

Default Weather makes the difference

It really doesn't matter how much snow and ice are out there. IF a warm spell sets in with some rain it will melt very quickly. Thursday is expected to be around 50 with half an inch of rain. That will dent it. But then it cools down a bit. Who knows what a couple weeks might bring. We have 4 weeks before normal ice out time. Too fast a melt would make quite a mess. I'm willing to be patient.

You'll be good in two weeks. Spring has been slow to come but there is no stopping the sun this time of year.
