Ice out

A friend told me that here in the Frozen Tundra of the North they have a name for the day when the ice melts on the lake, pond, or river. Unfortunately, I can't remember what it was... Ice Out, or maybe Ice In. In any case, although it snowed just last weekend, the ice on the pond behind my house was halfway gone on Tuesday, and finished melting yesterday. So April 16th is my own personal Ice Out (or Ice In, or whatever) Day for 2008.
