April 18th

Report from the south lake is the narrows crossing is done.  Open water can be seen around that tiny island you can see from the main landing.  The north lake has had pressure ridges form along the shore line and across at various spots.  One of the ridges from Campbells point to Memorial island collapsed and/or melted, leaving a line of open water.  There are very few places to access onto the ice for a walk as of yesterday.  Today is worse.  We are totally off the ice.
