    Default In or Out?

    I just took some ice out of my fridge which got me thinking about this thread.

    What's the status up on Long Lake and Winnipesaukee?

    Starting to see some shoreline breakup on Winne, but a long way to go...

    The water has been flowing into Long lake for the past few days raising the lake level. So, the edges are now wet - and 99% of the lake still has thick ice on it. I would guess you could walk on it fine.
