So, took a drive to Talkeetna today and: all the streams are ice free. All running a little high and all are some degree of dirty. ALL lakes (visible from the hwy & Talkeetna spur) are still covered with ice/slush, with some open water showing along the edges. The small portion of the Susitna River visible from Talkeetna spur appears to be open, with ice/snow on the gravel bars & banks.
