Today (April 23rd)
The Ice is out!  Official ice out was declared on 8:00 PM on Wednesday,  April 23rd.
Old Man's prediction:  April 24 (a day late and a dollar short).

April 23, 2008
The bay is clear.  No word on ice-out yet. 

April 22, 2008
A little bit left.  The broads are mostly clear.  It won't be long.

April 21st, 2008
There is a lot of floating ice past the end of the gas dock, but beyond that is open water!  Stay tuned. 

April 20th, 2008
It won't be long now. 

April 19th, 2008
More ice than yesterday.  Bad sign?  No!  Ice movement is good.  The shifting ice means it is breaking apart. 

April 18th 2008
The fisherman are back.  A good sign. 

April 17th, 2008
Plenty of movement in one day.  It looks similar to 2003 (which had an ice out of April 25th.).  Tomorrow is suppose to be in the 70's.  The Old Man of the Lake predicted ice-out on the 24th.  Could he be right again?

April 16th, 2008
The ice is starting to darken (which is good!).  The picture on the 14th is looks like black ice, but it is just cloud cover.  The ice that re-entered the Channel blew in from Mt.View Yacht Club.  It will be gone tomorrow.

Enough already.

April 4, 2008
There is a small crack running up the channel.  This is from the large amount of runoff (snow melting) coming into the marina,  and is a sign the channel will open up fairly quickly.

Al the "Ice Guru" says the ice is 2 feet thick.  

April 1, 2008
Rain and clouds (silver lining: 60 degree temperatures). 

March 31, 2008
Oh no.  More snow.  Don't forget the old adage, "March comes in like a lion and leaves like a lamb."  Yeah, right.

March 30, 2008
Beautiful and warm.  Let the melting begin. 

March 29, 2008
A beautiful site.  Unless, of course, you are growing tired of winter. 

March 28, 2008
3 inches of fresh snow.  This is not helping.  The Old Man wants to change his prediction.

March 25, 2008

It is looking frosty out there, but do not rule out a normal ice-out.  Look below for pictures of the last few years and we are ahead of 2001 (Ice out May 2).  It resembles 2005, which had an Ice-out of April 20th.  Don't look at 2002, it might lead to depression.  The Old Man of the Lake predicts an April 24th Ice-out.  You can bet your boat on it.
