Green Lake's western shore clear, ice remains on eastern parts of lake

Significant ice still remains Wednesday on eastern parts of Green Lake in Spicer. The Green Lake ice-out date for 2013 appears to have broken the previous latest ice out date record of May 7, 1951. Tribune photo by Ron Adams1 / 2
The western shoreline at Green Lake Tuesday was without ice cover. There is still ice cover on the eastern part of Green Lake, which is the deepest body of water in Kandiyohi County, and consequently the last to be free of ice. The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources records since 1897 indicate the latest ice out date recorded on Green Lake was May 7, 1951. Tribune photo by Tamara Swenson 2 / 2
