After a lengthy absence, the sun is out in full force. Conditions are perfect for making lake ice disappear: sunshine, light wind and daytime highs in the double digits. If this weather keeps up over the weekend as forecasted, we predict that small lakes will be open by early next week and big lakes like Opeongo and Cedar a few days later. Things look good for "opening day" on April 28. Stay tuned to this blog for further photo updates!
