Ice Out 2007, Installment 4.
The Lake Vermilion ice pack has entered it’s final days of existence.
Most smaller bays are now ice-free and much of the general shoreline has gapped with open water.
The locals are generally in agreement on the pending ice-out date. Most will quote a final day within a week and some will say the lake will open before the end of the weekend. That would make for a very typically ice-out year with the historical average date widely regarded as April 30th.
Continue to stay tuned for the eventual conclusion of “Ice Out 2007”.
