    More specific than that. It depends on where in that state.

    For reference, first ice for here in Michigan was over a week ago. But that wasn't anywhere close to LSC.

    Like said above, wind is really hurting it right now. Not giving the ice a chance to set up.

    My specific first ice body of water in the southern Lower Peninsula was fully locked up as of this morning.

    I'll be on ice next weekend.

    5 days of solid below freezing temps is gonna help quite a bit.
