Due to rapidly changing ice conditions the Ice Out Entry Date cutoff is now 4.10.20. I moved it up a couple of days.
The reason is we’re seeing a swing in weather that took us from a low of 16 degrees two nights ago to highs in the 50’s. On top of that, we had a nice spring rain shower last night and that is hard on ice!
There’s water on top of the ice this morning from the rain. This has a tendency to help rot the ice from the top down as well as the bottom up in the shallows. It won’t take too many sunny days to turn the ice into slush.
There are only a handful of entries so far so you’ve got a great chance to win $100 gift certificate. Remember, the gift certificate is good at EITHER the Trestle Pine Knives OR TSA Knives stores.
To enter all you need to do is send me an email with your best guess at: firstname.lastname@example.org with the DATE, Time AM/PM CST and a name.
