Over the past couple of days we initially had SW wind which chewed up any ice we had, then yesterday NW winds have kept the majority of the N lake open. This morning, after a fairly calm night, the shoreline ice margin has reappeared on our W shore. It varies down the shoreline and extends about 50 ft. out from our crib. A finger of ice extends out from Marsden point a short distance. Forecast winds today to be NW @ 20k so hope of ice will have to wait.
