TB snowman 2017 02-17According to Tucker Boyers, Friday was “blacktop day” at Clark Lake.  Blacktop day?  Tucker recalls that was the phrase Loretto Baker used to describe “the first day warm enough to sit out in your driveway and drink a beer in a lawn chair!”

Today, nature continued to nudge Clark Lake toward spring. Here is Tucker’s video of the ice piling against the shoreline.

These anglers couldn’t wait for the ice to disappear completely.  Ann Swain caught him cruising along the ice at the west end with this photo taken from Hyde Road.
