Without a lot of narration, here are some shots of the Cannon River above the dam during yesterday morning's wet snow. The ice was definitely on its way out, and in the final photo, taken today, there is a broad swath of open water at last. This is almost exactly the date the ice went out last year: see this March 10 post and this one on the 11th, and this one with video of a huge ice sheet going over the dam on March 13. In 2008 I noted the ice was out on March 18.
