"As of Thursday, March 22, the ice is officially off Lake Osakis.
Osakis resident Darwin Sibell made the call - he was designated as the Osakis Review's ice-out official.
The ice melted away one month earlier than last year. In 2011, ice out happened on April 22.
The average ice out date for Lake Osakis is April 19. The earliest ice out was recorded as March 13, 1878, and the latest ice out was May 14, 1950.
Lake Osakis officially froze over nearly five months ago - on December 5, 2011.
According to the state climatology office, Lake Osakis has the longest running data in the state when it comes to recording ice out dates; records go back 143 years."
