Just in case you haven't heard already.... the ICE IS OUT! Not exactly swimming weather but you can get your boat out and about. Watch out for things floating on or near the surface as the water is back up.

Loons are already back too..... the lake is the best place to be!

Missing a dock?
The ice is breaking up and the water is high. Just thought I'd post a pic of a dock that is floating around in the ice by Rabbit Island in front of the marina. Not sure where it will end up and can't get out there right now to secure it.
