Ice out for most of Blue Lake happened late afternoon on May 8, 2013.  Here’s a pictorial timeline:

In case you’re wondering how ready the lake is for open-water activities, as of May 10th, barefoot waterskiiers, loons and kayakers have been spotted on the lake.  So if you’re not up here already, hurry on up before it freezes again!

    The first out skiing was always a competition. Years ago it was between, Jim and Rick Remien, the Straub boys and my brother and I.

    Don’t be so cynical Christy. You know darn well that we’ll get a week or two of summer before the lake starts freezing over again!
