The ice is breaking up and on the move on the big lakes...

Not the best shot here. It could be half open already?? The dark color on the surface makes it look more open than it may actually be though. Due to shadoow and or sun angles.

Open water reported on bays on the big lakes. But could push ice back in with onshore winds. Could take all day for that to happen though depending on how far the ice sheet really is.

Lake Francis looks open. Shoal Lakes look open. Red River Delta looks open. Grand Marais and Grand Beach lagoons reported open. Likely Willow lagoon is also open.

There still the floodway option. I think the crest was to hit Winnipeg this week??

Nice Rich, I have fond memories of getting to kite last fall in your scenic clear water white sand location.

Looks like the wind may have blown the ice sheet south.
