Chandos Lake Ice In/Ice Out Dates 2007 - 2012

The ice in and ice out dates have fluctuated somewhat since I started recording the dates after we purchased our place on Chandos Lake in the spring of 2007.

Chandos Lake Ice In/Ice Out Dates 2007 - 2012

                                  Ice Out                              Ice In

2007                                                                    December 10, 2007
2008                         April 21, 2008                    December  8, 2008
2009                         April 16, 2009                    January 4, 2010
2010                         April 3, 2010                      December 21, 2010
2011                         April 20, 2011                    January 15, 2012
2012                         March 23, 2012                  December 29, 2012

At this point the ice is far from safe for travel.  The forecast calls for well below zero Celsius temperatures right through the first week of 2013 with very little snow so the ice should build quickly.

Be extremely careful travelling the lake even after the ice has frozen sufficiently to permit travel across it.
