The ice-out hasn't been declared on Lake Minnetonka, but at least one boat has bid farewell to our extended winter and stubbornly launched for the season.
Dave Thorp of Minnetonka submitted the picture of this sign of spring.
On Lake Minnetonka, the average ice out date is April 15 – a date that came and went this week. According to the Fresh Water Society, the latest ice-out happened on May 8, 1856, which seems like a real possibility given the lingering snow in our forecast.
