Last Year & This Year
I was able to find a picture of the lake when we arrived last year, mid-April, 2008.
This was thick ice that lasted almost another month.
I took a picture yesterday, April 22, 2009, of the lake. As you can see, there’s a huge hole forming. That hole is a very good thing!
The lake is thawing at a good rate.
We should have no problem making ice-out before opener. Last year we weren’t able to put the docks in until 2 DAYS prior to opener! That’s more stress than we care to deal with ever again:)
