I was all set to give an update today for Charlie that he has fallen down on the job. Below are the photos taken yesterday, March 29th.

But with the warm temps and high winds today Charlie went swimming. Congratulations to Debby Taves who chose March 30th for the plunge.

This photo was taken at noon.

This was also taken at noon. You can see that Charlie has fallen through, but is still surrounded by ice.

By 5PM Charlie is completely free from the ice and is now resting on the shoreline.

Thank you to all 81 people who made a guess for Charlie’s plunge. Only 5 of you chose March and this was year for early ice out.
