Ice Watch May 6 2014

Finally, winter has lost the battle.  Most of Georgian Bay is ice free, and temperatures (and forecast rain) over the next few days will take care of the rest.  Parry Sound is completely ice free, as is Snug Harbour.  There are thinning ice fields offshore with the potential to block access to areas if they shift around, but the ice is extremely rotten and should dissipate quickly.  See below for more imagery from May 6 2014.

Let the season commence!
