As participants in the Polar Plunge took their leap, there was something else going on.  If you listened carefully, you could hear ice crunching as it pushed against several shorelines around the lake.  Bill Leutz reports more areas opening and large floes shoved by Saturday’s winds.

Is that for ice on the lake this winter?  According to Bill, water temperature was 31 degrees Saturday.  Cold weather in the forecast could change the thaw to a refreeze.  It’s happened before.
