"Hot Topic" Around Long Lake

At the Long Lake Ladies Christmas Dinner Party on December 8th, 2015, at Blueberry Pines one of the frequent topics of conversation was "When will the lake freeze over this year?".  We have the historical ice information link below to help you make an informed guesstimate.  See the wonderful pictures of the fun evening compliments of CC White too.

During the winter of 2011-2012 the ducks, geese, and swans were able to keep the waters open in the deep part of our lake until January 14th.  That is the latest that we have had "Ice In" since John & Bella Sanders began tracking it in 1987.  The Long Lake Area Association is a thankful beneficiary of their ice-in/ice-out data.

We strive to keep that data updated now with the help of many Long Lake friends around the lake.
