Clear Lake is now Ice Free. The winners are…

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.

Lac Clair fin PM 24 avril 2016

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?

    WOW, very cool. I am sure George is smiling down on me. His guess was always pretty close.
    Thanks for a fun contest, Jacques.
    His blessings to all.

    Obviously Wendy did get help from above as she has a direct line.
    Way to go, Wendy!

    Yes, Wendy, George is smiling on you from above. His spirit is alive up there.
    Good guess. Congrats.

    Congratulations Wendy and Dianne!
    Maybe the fact that today was Karen’s birthday made a difference too!
    Nature – how to explain it! Love to all.

    Clear Lake isn’t ALL FREE. Around Campbell’s bend, in front of Curtin’s & Bellefeuille’s, there’s ICE. Maybe I’ll win my bet tomorrow after all.

    I believe you Claudette even though no ice is visible from here. And will this little piece of ice still be there at the end of the day?
