The big lake’s latest ice-out has long been pegged as May 8, 1856. Turns out the record is fresher and more in reach.

It didn't fit the 'pattern' so lets change the year. Just another 'climate change' mess.

Astounding they will toss out something that old based on just the fact other lakes declared ice-out earlier. I would think it would take more evidence than modern-day doubt.

Finally! This confirms my belief that Global warming is not occuring because of a late ice out date on a lake in Minnesota. Thank you forgone conclusion!

This could mean only one thing- Lake Minnetonka is not on the globe.

Ice will be out by April 30th. Big holes in the ice now. All we need is a good wind.
