Old Man Winter retreats but slowly. After the unwinter of 2015/26, Spring is taking her sweet time as Georgian Bay continues to suffer lows below seasonal averages. Still, the Bay proper is completely clear of ice, and waterways are rapidly clearing out. Satellites show fast ice remaining primarily in the extreme north. Compared to April 11 2015, we’re far ahead of where we were last year. In May of 2014 and 2015 there where still icepacks floating around the Bay.
