Platte Lake Ice Out Prediction for 2018

This is the date when I blog about this topic.  I actually already spitballed it a little bit on Facebook already.  We are possibly in the early stages of the biggest snowstorm of the year right now.  The snow from the previous 3 snowstorms was a good half to two-thirds melted this week.  One thing I can say for sure is that it's not going to be an early ice off this year.  Too much snow and ice to melt.  I think we are going to be on the late side for ice off this year.  Therefore I am guessing April 22nd for the day I declare Platte ice-free.  That would give 3 weeks before Opener.  May it be so!
