March Ice-Out

Early Spring is an interesting time on Lake George. The ice on the lake is melting, and as it does, it moves! Depending on the direction of the wind, it will move out of our bay, having no impact on us, or it can shift and cause all sorts of damage. So far we’re okay though our neighbor’s new dock got hit badly! If you look closely at the pictures taken from the deck you can see the ice moving across the bay. Winter or summer the view from Chelka Lodge is always memorable.

Spring is also a time for major clean-up. The winters here are harsh, causing tree limbs, pine cones and pine needles to fall. No matter how much we rake in the Fall, it appears as though we never did it! But, it’s great to get outside and see the lake come back to life. Our two labs, Heidi and Lacey, have already been swimming-sometimes among the loose slabs of ice. The days are getting warmer and the birds have returned. Summer isn’t far away!
