Mon 4-8-2019

(Arnolds Park)-- It's official: the ice has gone out of the Iowa Great Lakes.

Kirk Ewen of Arnolds Park keeps track of the official freeze-thaw dates of the Okoboji's. He tells KUOO news the final bits of ice went out on both East and West Lake Okoboji today (Monday).

That compares with last year when the ice didn't leave West Lake until April 30th and East Lake April 29th.
