Ice out prediction.
Wed, Apr 1 2015 06:02
Well, you can tell spring is near and the ice is getting bad when someone puts a truck through the ice under the Causeway, that's what happened last Sunday. A couple of young guys were out fishing on Saturday and caught some nice walleyes, so decided to try again the next day and dropped their truck through under the bridge. They both crawled out the passenger window, they were lucky, but the truck not so. It's still on the bottom. The temps climbed today to 17c or 62fahrenheit.
My prediction for ice out is April 25. The Taxi will be in the water even earlier, I can launch at the Sorting Gap Marina and get to my dock before the North Arm opens. I will blog again in 2 weeks with more updates. Thank you for your business.
