4/17/07 – Spring is quickly arriving at Sawbill. Yesterday was a gorgeous day with temperatures in the 60s, flawless blue skies, and no wind. The lake ice took a hit, but is still 18.5″ thick with about 10″ of really solid ice. I might try skiing this afternoon. The pictures tell the tale. – Bill
The snow has melted away except for drifts and piles. The lakes are mushy on the surface, but pretty solid underneath.
18.5″ of ice about 100′ off the Sawbill Lake canoe landing.

South facing points are starting to show some open water. Stream outlets and shallow ponds are also opening up.
