Ice is officially out here in Ely. Shagawa lake is completely clear. You won't be able to see in the pictures, but I even spotted black and white ducks diving and swimming. They were marked like merganzers or buffleheads. The wind was raging all night long and I'm sure that took out the skim of ice that was left from yesterday.
It rained a little this morning, snowed a little and sleet came down for a while.
Cold and wet here now, more like the April we're used to.
