March 19 - It's a new record! The ice on Mattanawcook Pond went out today, the earliest since records have been kept (1930).

These dates are provided to us by Andrea Kneeland of Lincoln Motor Company on the shores of Mattanawcook Pond. Andrea tells us that every owner of Lincoln Motor Company or the building it occupies (it was once an ice house) has kept up the tradition of recording the ice out date each year since 1930. The ice is considered out when the pond is open as far as Weatherbee Island.
