…Da Ski Boy. Peter is so excited! This is the first time he’s ever won!!!!
I admit, I’m very surprised that the ice went out this early. There was a part of me that was sure that it wouldn’t go out until sometime in June. But it went out today, May 6th. Which is right around the average date.
Even as late as Friday, I was thinking we still had another week to go. But yesterday, I was stunned to discover that 75% of the ice was gone. It just disappeared - there was just a bit remaining at the west end. Must have been the wind on Friday.
Below are the final standings. All the late guesses. I suppose that will teach us - even after a winter like this one, the ice generally goes out between May 2nd and May 6th.
