It looks like it’s gonna be a while before we’re able to walk on the lake.
The unusually warm November has not produced any appreciable ice except in the very smallest bays.
December 1st and no lake ice!
We’re very good at monitoring and recording the “ice-out dates” in the early Spring but, as far as I know, there is no history of “ice-in dates” in early Winter.
So… be patient.
Consistent below freezing temperatures are in the forecast and that means we may still have the opportunity to enjoy 5+ months of frozen lake.
(Also… be sure to review the Department of Natural Resources Ice Safety Information page.)
