All Things Pleasant on the Lake

The third week of April was very much another week of winter here on the lake. We were even “iced in” for a while as driving sleet and freezing rain left a thick coating of ice on lakeside windows. Nevertheless, we broke out in sunny smiles when we realized that the Hollinger ice boat was out in the storm, zipping about on the frozen lake!

We would all love to set wide our windows, but winter has very much held us in her grip this week, with snow falling almost every day. Last season, the ice went out on Pleasant Lake on April 16th, which is a normal ice out time for this lake.

We have needed the warming sunshine this week, as cold, blustery North Wind has taken us over. Nevertheless, the lake is looking a little gray in spots and where brooks enter there is open water. Common Mergansers are appearing, a sure sign of spring! The males are often mistaken for loons this time of year.
