The ice is pretty solid yet but starting to get a little soft on top where there's slush ice. Taking a test measurement had just over 26" of ice depth overall, but the top 6" was the frozen white slush ice. The slush ice is poor ice as very porous and full of air bubbles. It softens up pretty quick in the warm temps. The remaining 20" of "blue" solid ice is pretty tight yet with minimal signs of crystalizing or honeycombing. Forecast this week is above norm temps all week with lows staying above freezing and highs into the low 50F's (13C). This should kick start the melt pretty quick!
