JOE’S POND ICE OUT APRIL 5, 2010 April 5, 2010

Posted by thenaturalist in Ice Outs, Joe's Pond.

A Vermont man correctly picked the exact time the ice went out of Joe’s Pond this year. Bill Barber of St. Johnsbury correctly guessed 2:46 p.m. April 5, 2010, which was the exact time the alarm clock was triggered by the cinder block that fell through the melting ice. More than 11,500 tickets were purchased this year, and Barber, who has a degree in polar science, won $5,000. (“Man guesses ice out to the minute,” AP/BFP, April 9, 2010)
