Recommended Posts

With an average year we're sailing now in shorts. Last year we'd been on the water over a month. This is the ice sample taken yesterday on Lake Minnetonka. Over 2 feet of solid clear/blue ice.

You guys got nailed worse then we did,   My sympathy,   I’d type more, but I’m heading to the ramp.  Thaw will come for you some fine summer day.  Cheers.

Holy crap!  My first thought when I looked at that was that you were using a meter stick to measure (not that 24 cm of ice will go away fast)...

Indeed. And in a total reversal of normal fortune, Lake Superior is mostly ice free, with the exception of where 99% of the sailor there launch and keep boats.

That looks pretty bleak. No spring buds yet?

I was just thinking... 50 years ago I was skiing in Lutsen, MN and broke my leg.
