Ice out – April 12

Posted: April 23, 2011

The ice finally left the lake on April 12, a welcome sign that spring is coming.

And we have a winner in our first-annual Augur Ice-Out contest!    The closest guess for this year’s ice-out was two days off.    Congratulations to Andrew L., who guessed April 10.

There is only one month until a small group of counselors join us at camp to begin opening cabins, rolling tennis courts (we roll the courts many, many times during June to harden them for a summer of play!), and putting in the docks.

It was fun receiving your guesses – maybe we could gather guesses for when the first mosquitoes or black flies will appear! (!)

No open water yet!

Pete sent a photo and report from camp:   ” The ice is
beginning to darken a bit in places, but no signs yet of open water.  And this afternoon it’s snowing again!”

It’s not to late to make your guess!

Ice on the lake in April

Posted: April 4, 2011

We were at camp last Thursday – and I was able to walk out on to the lake (safely) to take photos.      I had guessed March 28 for the date that the ice would go out of the lake – I can see now that a sunny day or two had me feeling very optimistic about the arrival of spring!

It is now April 4th, and the ice is still in place.    Does anyone want to wager a guess    All guesses are welcome (though the person who guessed May 25 …you know who you are…we hope you are wrong!!!).   Please use the ice-out link!     The person who guesses correctly will get a 2011 camp t-shirt.

And what were we doing at camp (you may ask), besides wandering around camp and on to the lake      Yes – putting together the parent handbook!    83 days until another great season!!

Thinking of summer

Posted: February 19, 2011

With the weather of the past few days feeling spring-like and the snow trying to melt, it’s easy to think ahead to summer!

The truth is that the ice is still thick on the lake, and the snow has been piling up on the cabin roofs.

David, Doug, Emily, Keir (! yes !), Tom and Dave, and a few friends were at camp last week doing some serious shoveling to protect the cabins from the weight of the heavy snow.

Thankfully it wasn’t all work!
