Early in April, I asked you to guess when Clear Lake would be ice free.
Response was very good. Answers (31) covered a wide range from April 15 to May 5. The correct answer is April 26
Today, Tuesday April 26, the lake is finally ice free.
Two residents guessed it right: Wendy Crooks and Dianne Vanstone.
Note: In a previous edition, I forgot to name Dianne Vanstone. My mistake. My apologies.
This is what the lake looked like mid afternoon on Sunday April 24. A few hours later, this ice was gone but, on Monday morning, a long strip of ice was still present on the south shore of the lake in it’s eastern section. It disappeared the next day, April 26, the date the lake became ice free.
But a question remains: did Wendy get help from above?
