Ice is on the move

The weather has been all over the place this spring, but we usually look for ice out the first week of May. We have had a couple of boats in the water for a week now, to break up the ice around the docks. The last couple of days we are starting to see the ice shift, so it won't be long now. When the ice is moving like this, we have to break up the large pieces with the boats so it doesn't damage the docks. Then we'll tie the boat to the dock and leave it running in gear to have the prop wash push the ice away from the docks. Here are a couple of shots of today's ice. Looking like high water this spring.
