Into the home stretch?

With record temperatures expected again in Toronto this weekend it is hard not to think that we're going to see a record early ice out this year. It was pretty cold up in Algonquin last week, but it'll be well above zero even at night for at least the next week.

If anyone has news (and photos!) from Algonquin, please shoot me an email so I can post it here.

I have posted all the date choices received over the past couple of weeks. There was a sudden surge of interest in April 10th for some reason, with 9 people choosing this date in the past 10 days!
