The boat lift that froze in place near the township park appears to be in about the same location when ice overtook it

Clark Lake awoke this morning to open water, with only a few chunks of ice bobbing around the shoreline like ice cubes in a glass of lemonade on a summer afternoon.  The refreshing change brought out people who were taking in the lake’s advance into the spring season.

Another thought about the thaw comes from John Deming. He points out that after “extended winter conditions the possibility of a fish die-off increases.”  If you see evidence of this, would you please email this website at  Also a reminder to watch for glass bottles and other trash that was left on the ice and could be floating your way.
