Lake Minnetonka Ice out watch is filled with vagueries.

Calling the MInnetonka ice-out is a hazy business, and I am usually a day late with my ground level report, just to be sure that my accuracy record remains intact. 100% late. But it is symbolic.
It is all about Spring. Saturday morning was wrapped in the pervasive fog that clung to the Lake and surrounding wetland for the past week. Then Sunday the sun came out. An nearly early Easter*, early daylight savings time, and a wide range of migrating birds checking in signalling Spring.
* My head rotates when I read the details of how the date for Easter is determined. "The first Sunday after the Paschal full moon." Not just the regular full moon, no the Paschal one, which can occur up to 2 days after the lunar calendar full moon.
