3/31/06 – Spring is arriving with a vengeance here at Sawbill. The last week has been very warm and finished with two days of pouring rain. Our snow went from nearly 20 inches on the ground to about 8 inches in just two fast days. At this point, it looks like we’re on track for an early ice out. That said, this is Minnesota, so the weather could turn and stay cold for several more weeks. – Bill
The warm sun has opened up some bare ground in a few spots.
Sawbill Lake is still covered with 20+ inches of ice and snow. Travel is safe now, but for how much longer?
Despite super-fast melting, we still have a way to go before the store can open for the season.
