20 April 2018: Clary Lake is (Finally) Ice Free!

Clary Lake is finally ice free! Much of the lake has been free of ice for the past 4-5 days,  but there was a large raft of ice down in the east end by the State boat launch that refused to dissipate. That ice is gone as of this morning. The loons are back and there are ducks and geese all over the place. I love spring! Historically, April 20th is a little late, but not by much. We have ice-in and ice-out dates going back to 2001:

I plan to get my boat in the water this weekend. Let the boating season begin!
