Lake Martha Ice Out Dates

*2017 First time second ice-out in our recorded history.  Complete Refreeze for about one week.

"I have kept track of ice-outs since I moved here in 1976. I wrote down the ice out date in 1977 on my garage wall. I am still looking for that entry. I consider the ice to be out, when you can cross the lake at a full diameter in at least one direction, for any other full diameter. Theoretically, this means that up to one half of the lake could still be ice covered, although it never is.

You are welcome to help me look around for the 1977 date in my garage."
