First thoughts on ice-out '09

Despite the seemingly endless winter this year (this coming from someone who loves the winter), we are thinking about spring. Or at least trying too, which isn't easy when the morning temperature has been averaging about -25 C for the last few days.

Our friend Scott Hayden over at the Blue Spruce Resort reports that the ice on Oxtongue Lake is at least 36" thick. He bottomed out his ice auger the other day in a vain attempt to go ice fishing. Hmmmm....

With that information, you might try to take an early guess and be the first to enter the 2009 Canoe Lake Ice-Out contest, which now up and running.
