[ Contest: When Will The Lake Freeze? ]

frozenlakekdIt seems every year the Big Freeze on Madison’s Lake Mendota happens later and later.

Actually, ever since climatologists have kept records on this topic, it’s varied quite a bit.The earliest freeze on record was November 25th; the latest was January 30th.

Each year, the Clean Lakes Alliance sponsors a contest. This year, the person with the best guess as to when the lake will freeze over wins a $1000 gift card to Lands End.


Have a guess? Enter and check out all the rules here.
