Jonah's got it right. Except, if you're worried about Long, keep in mind that the south end if always first to go out!

Thanks for the info. Was hoping to come up in early May to open up and get the dock/boats in the water. I was up in February and it was down right cold for a long period of time. The ice was pretty thick and I didnt know if this could push the ice-out into May on Long?

It's hard to say...I don't know if all the snow will change anything, but it's pretty deep on the south end. Forcast is predicting warm weather...a good couple of weeks could do some serious damage...
