Spring 2013 is moving at a much slower pace compared to Spring 2012. Ice still is covering many lakes across Minnesota but Spring is already well into the air with the warmer days and brighter sunshine. Many changes will appear the next few weeks as things quickly transition from a brown look to green up by early May. You can already hear the new bird songs and even some tulips are popping up in the areas facing the south. During the month of April the daylight will grow longer and the grasses will continue to green and eventually the frogs will be singing a noisy evening chorus that Spring is really here. Average high temperatures at Bay Lake will rise from the mid 40s in early April to near 60 degrees by the end of the month and climbing into the 70s during May.
Watch for the signs, they are right around the corner and soon we will all be enjoying the lake!
