Ice blowing in, being pulped and sinking out of sight as it hits the shore. You can see the open water to the west in the background.


MAY 2, 2005 Wow, cold last night, minus 1 C. No wind overnight.

This morning it was cloudy and cold with a promise of rain. The ice looked hard.

By afternoon, it was very windy from the west and southwest. The ice was on the move, and I mean, move. I suspect that it will be gone by morning.

MAY 3, 2005 I was correct: ICE GONE. This has been one of the longest break-ups in years.
