Still today after 2 days that approach 70F many lakes are 30+ inches of ice.

This is the most I remember ever this late in the spring.

Fun, although on April 30th because of the incredible (warmish) winds, the lake ice has thinned considerably.

It looks as though we might have open water for fishing opener yet, but we might have to avoid slush and icebergs.

Now if it were not for tonight hitting the freeze point again.

Woke up to an inch of crusty snow this AM.

First time in my life I saw measurable snow in Iowa in May!

Well ice out didn't make it on the lake the governor wanted to fish.



Some will try to fish around around the ice, but if the wind shifts, some boats might get stranded at best, crushed at worst.






We also have had more media coverage than we have seen since the last tornado.

This opener has been in the planning for over a year, right after the governor made the decision.
Looks like we got a 2 for one though this year, the North Dakota governor is here his year too, along with Mn State reps.

All the tourism is very much needed for the economy.
What I loved to see with all of this was the Walmart parking lot almost empty, but main street full to capacity!

One of the "Tents" setup for the event was a full city bock.
