Update April 19, 2019 - No Ice-Out Declared.
Five of us (Dundee, Steve M, Mike D, Steve P plus Oliver) paddled in two canoes to south end of Pond Friday Apr 19, 2019 around 3 pm. Could not get close to Piney Point nor Leavitt cove. Ice was 6 inches think on the edges and we could not break through with our canoes. North end of Pond open with large sheets of ice floating pushed by high winds. We had life vests in our canoes, BUT should have been wearing them! No ice out declared for April 19th!

April 17, 2019 - No Ice-Out
