Ice out 2005
Pre-2001 Ice-out graph
The ice is out! Old Man's prediction: April 27
April 20, 2007
Good news for ice fisherman, bad news for boaters. Although the ice was not as thick as the last two years, it looks like it is going to be a later ice out. The culprit: all the late snow fall. Snow is a great insulator protecting this ice from it's three worse enemies: sun, wind and rain. The ice situation looks a lot closer to 2001 (May 2, ice out) than last year (April 20, ice out). Split the difference for an accurate ice-out prediction. Stay tuned.
