I took this picture out my office window this morning. The ice is not off Clary yet, but it’s well on it’s way! I’d estimate that about 1/3 of the ice is gone and I’ll be surprised if there’s any left by the end of the week. It’s hard to imagine there were people ice fishing just one week ago. With the ice on the way out, can the loons be far behind? They don’t wait for the ice to be completely gone. I’ve already seen ducks, geese, and a couple of eagles checking out the open water. What a great time of year!
With ice-out imminent, we’ve stopped accepting new guesses for our Ice Out Contest. We’ll announce the winner(s) after the Official Ice Out Call is made.
