Here's an image of the 2015 Ironman Lake PLacid Swim/Start on July 26th, just a little after 6:30am. This is the first wave to go into the water. It was taken from the 2nd floor balcony of the beach house on Mirror Lake.
March 24th, 2015 and still cold. Four below zero this morning in Upstate, NY, but the sun is shining. This is the second year in a row that Lake Champlain has frozen over completely. No ferry service here in Essex, NY until ice out.
