What can one compare "Ice-Out" on Lake Vermilion to?
Maybe the removal of a plaster cast?
Or the lifting of the burden of depression?
Maybe it's just simply the renewal of the human spirit?
Yes, to us "year-a-rounders" it's as important as that!
It doesn't always happen on the same day every spring,
but it does happen.

What's the probability of an early ice-out happening this year?
Above is a chart of what day it happened during past years.
If you want to see when it happened on a particular year,
rather than trying to find the year on this chart,
check out the other chart I've prepared
that shows ice-out dates for each year from here.
