Join the Fun! When will the Ice go Out on Long Lake this Year?

February proved to be a fickle month this year. Temperatures were jumping all over the place with readings from the negative range clear up to 48 degrees.  Right now we need to think positively about Spring.  So what date do you think the ice will be off the lake?  For those of you who are into research, check out our ICE DATA tab on the longlakeliving website.  It might help with your decision.  If Ice Out is later than May 22 or earlier than March 19, that may mean we are seeing some climate change effects.  Is this year more like 2012 or 1996? 

To participate in the fun please send your guess to  The deadline for your submission is March 15.  Those who select the winning date will be recognized on the website and at the Annual Meeting (Saturday, June 24, 2023).  All participants in the contest will be placed in a drawing and one person will be chosen to receive a prize which will be awarded at the LLAA Annual Meeting on Saturday morning, June 24, 2023.  Good Luck to all!
