Winner of Ice-out contest!


winter didn't want to end this year

Today at the lake, we finally have a winner for the ice-out contest thanks to the dump of rain last night. The ice has been holding out in one corner of the lake for the last four days

stubborn ice in the bays

But today - YAY! Ice-free and ready for summer!




Just in time for our canoe instructor course this weekend! Went paddling two days ago and gingerly tested the temperatures. Let's just say I hope the canoe rescue portion will be quick since I'll be IN THE LAKE.

So.

We have a winner!  Winning guess of April 27 at 12:34.  (can I borrow your crystal ball?)

VIVIEN!!

And the prize is....


Thanks to everyone for playing along!

note: I guessed the 25 so I lost our family bet this year.

Consarn it! I knew I'd lose when we went to visit friends this past weekend and I saw the ice melting on their lake...
Congratulations to you, though, Vivien! That's a great prize!

I love the winter as I grew up in the great state of Michigan. Living in California I only see it from a distance on the snow capped mountains. One of these days I'll take the kids up to see and frolic in the snow.

Congrats to Vivian. Glad it thawed but I could use some warmer weather. Hardly ready for summer. Sigh.
