The ice is looking very dark… when it gets like this it could turn crystally… when the wind jostles the crystalized ice it creates the neatest tinkling sound. 

Back in March Stu had wagered the ice would leave April 26th ( a safe bet as it is traditinally about this time it goes. 

I bet May 5th but I don’t think it will last that long…   SOON!
