April 12 supplimental

Thanks to Gary again for the pictures.  The ice has showed great change.  The south lake is looking very close to going.  Up here in the cccold north the margins have increased on the west side with open water up to 10 feet.  This varies along different parts of the shoreline. There is a a nice crack running from the lighthouse point to the shore near the station which has opened up about a foot.  East side is still pretty tight to the shore but has shown promise.  Campbells point is extending farther out every day.Word from Bradleys bay is the ice pan out towards the middle is still solid and hasn't softened up much yet, but, the edges are going and the margin is increasing.
