ICE OUT! ICE OUT! ICE OUT! ICE OUT! ICE OUT! ICE OUT! ICE OUT!

IT IS OFFICIAL……..THE ICE IS OUT ON MEGUNTICOOK LAKE.

The “Ice Out” was called today, April 15th at 9:55 this morning. The recent high winds and warm weather put a quick end to any remaining ice. There was a small thin band of ice the stretched from Lutz Island to the mainland that finally gave way this morning (in the wind and rain).IMG_0216IMG_0212
