ICE BREAK 2017

Aprils Fools Day was not joking at the lake today.   We have had multiple reports of docks being torn loose and pilings being pushed over.  At 3pm the ice has cleared West from Smitty’s Boat House (white with red roof, 1.2M uplake on the North Shore)  the home of the Uplake Webcam.  Ice is piling up on lee shores as seen in the photo  below.  Gage Bockenstedt sent in the following link to youtube time lapse video  of the effort to save pilings on the North Shore.
