What a difference a year makes.

Last year on April 4, we posted a slideshow of the ice going out.  May 4/2012   Last year it was open water more than a month early.  It looks like this year we have a few weeks to go.  What me worry?

Opener is May 18.  Our first guests arrive on May 17. 


Let me do some calculations… May 1 lots of ice.  May 17 fishermen arriving.  Two weeks to melt a winter’s worth of ice.   The temps better start rising or Karen won’t have access to her hairdryer for a while and I am going to have one heck of an electric bill.
