As you can see by the picture, the water is coming up which of course means the ice is too. Combined with some heavy winds and rain, this is unfortunately causing some dock damage around the lakes. The forecast is showing signs of warmer weather ahead which means spring must be getting close! That being said, there is still a fair amount of ice to melt, and our best guess is things look to be heading in the normal direction for ice-out around April 20th. Hopefully Mother Nature will keep things drier for us than other years, and make getting boats out a touch easier with less mud.
As always, we require a minimum of two weeks notice to have your boats back on the dock, so make sure you let Gord know as soon as possible, as it is always first come, first served. If you don’t get a confirmation from the marina that we have received your request, it means we didn’t get it so please try again. Gord has stocked the shelves with lots of new toys and towables, so be sure to stop by and pick something out for the new season ahead. Any dock requirements can also be taken care of and are booking up quickly.
Be careful as you make plans to head up to cottage country over the coming weeks as the roads are starting to soften but still have some icy patches and snow.
Enjoy the rest of the week.
