When Was Ice Out on Your Lake?

There’s a great new way to keep track of the ice-out date on your lake or pond!  

 

It’s a new Maine.gov website:  http://maine.gov/dacf/parks/water_activities/boating/ice_out_dates.shtml

When the ice goes out on your lake (or even if it already did, this year) send a quick email to the new ice-out webmaster:  timothy.thurston@maine.gov.

Be sure to include lake name, town, and date of ice-out. 

In the Spring, during weekdays, Maine Agriculture and Forestry will update ice-out information daily as it becomes available.

The website also has records of previous ice-out dates and links to federal data on ice-out in New England.

Very interesting!
