Prior instances when it was on April 24 (non-leap years)
and April 23 (leap years).
I take LEAP YEARS into account.
I count days from January 1, taking into account leap years.
So, April 21 & April 22 are 111-days in From Jan. 1
depending on whether it was Leap Year or not.
Ice Out 1992 to 2019.
Vagaries of Ice Out 2000 to 2019.
So, it wasn’t April 22nd as most people had expected. It was two-day later.
But, it was 2-days earlier than last year.
Same as 2015.
2014 was one-day off, but was also on a Wednesday.
Nowhere close to being even close to ‘long’. Longest was 132-days (since Jan. 1) in 1888.
Also, not the shortest. SHORTEST was just 3-years ago. 2016. 77-days, March 18,
