And today (Friday) provided strong evidence that this winter’s ice on Clark Lake is on the way out. With sunshine and warmer temperatures over the last few days, several large areas of open water have appeared. This afternoon’s high wind gave the ice a push and created ice floes. In past seasons, these ice floes have sometimes piled up along some shorelines and threatened breakwaters. There is a photo on this website of ice clogging the dam at Ocean Beach. So far no problems like these have been observed this season.
Familiar wildlife continue to visit us. These include ducks, wood ducks, sandhill cranes, Canadian geese and robins.
