April 24, 2015, in this NON Leap Year, will be the 113th day of the year. Ice-Out has happened 12 times on the 113th day, in 1896, 1912 & 2008, which were all leap years, that having been on April 23rd. In 1920, another leap year, April 24 was the 114th day!
During the 128 years we know of ice-out has happened 82 times PRIOR to the 113th day; i.e., 64% of the time.
In 34 years the ice-out happened on the 114th day of later.
The record being the 132nd day in 1888; i.e., May 12, 1888.
The last time it was April 24 per se was 1997.
The last time it was the 113th day was much more recent, i.e., 2008.
