ice out 06

When does the ice usually "go out?"

What does "ice out" mean?

Andy Dickson said the ice is out when "you can swim from one side of the lake to the other, if you are so inclined." (haha)

Gary Jones, who has traditionally been the Judge, defines it as "when you can go for a boat ride. Generally it's pretty obvious when the majority of the ice breaks up creating a large area of open water."

Sonny Goodison says, "Sometimes when the ice goes out or in, it becomes what they call honey-combed. The ice appears OK but with some wind it just kind of tinkles and is gone. I've found out also that it mixes good with Scotch."
