Is the ice out

Below are 2 shots from our webcam taken this morning. The first is from 8AM and as you can see, there is a lot of open water but also, a lot of ice along this side of the shore. My understanding is “Ice Out” is when you can get from point A to point B so where are these points?
The wind kicked up so as you can see in the second 10AM shot, very little ice can be seen.

Now it is after noon and I only see some “crushed ice” along our shore so I can honestly say that the Ice Out Date is today, April 26th. Visit our website webcam to see it for yourself. I will call Allen in the morning to confirm the official date.

Sorry, no winners this year although Celie was the closest…she thought April 28th.
