It’s happening! The Big Melt is here. Like a bathtub ring, mist is held in the bowl of the lakes shrouding islands so they appear to float. No parking on the water this week, the ice has lost its strength. Locally we say it’s rotting – and not soon enough! This time last year we had been boating for 3 weeks already. But I get ahead of myself. 15cm of snow it forecast for Friday. Melt? Schmelt!
