When will the ice be off Lake Minnetonka? Ice melting off a lake means spring and melts away spring fever.


Everyone is anxious for the ice to be off the lake. We live in an area where we get cabin fever at this time of the year and we just can’t wait for one of the first signs of spring; the ice totally melting off the lake. istock_000005379973small1istock_000001025366small

Many people try to predict the exact date, people have “Ice Off” parties, and the winter blaas just seem to melt away along with the ice!

Do you want to move off the lake…

If you want to move off the lake, it is easier to just move yourself, not your house too!If you are moving off the lake, just move yourself, not the house. It's too much work!

There is an elephant in the room…

and its the WEATHER! Finally, it is warming up. Spring has sprung! It is a balmy 41 degrees! and its only gonna get BETTER!

We could be seeing 70 DEGREES tomorrow!!!!

Its about time we feel the warmth of the spring. I have had enough of the cold in the past few days. There should be a rule that the weather people have which is NO SNOW STORMS IN APRIL.

We may even see some rain on Wednesday. I’m ok with that as we need a good soaking so all the flowers and greens can come up through the dirt. I even saw a few buds poking through the dirt as I was leaving my home this morning.

Don’t forget to get your taxes done if you haven’t already! Just so you know, I may be finished with mine or I may not. You don’t know.

Happy Spring!
