May 12th report:  The ice is gone, the dam boards are in, the weather is warm and the loons are back.  All is well. 

April 22nd report:  I have been informed by one of our keen observers that there are still some ice floes in the center of the pond. I expect these to be gone soon. (see home page picture).
