The Augur Lake Ice-Out Prediction Committee is poised to take your 2012 predictions for this most unusual of winters!
Each year, we attempt to get a sense of how many wetsuits will be needed for the Pre Pre Crew to wear, whilst braving the cold waters of the Augur to put the docks in. In trying to ascertain such vital information, a level of competitive guessing has developed and we invite you all to throw your ideas about dates into the mix. Please submit your predictions promptly through this survey link. http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/DQ3GNK3
Attached for your reference is a photo taken yesterday showing a stretch of open water off Hulls’ point. That open water is an anomaly, because a narrower version of it also appeared earlier in the winter, when Peter’s ice boat was flying back and forth across the lake. What it means is anybody’s guess…. Good Luck!
