Is there a word that’s used for the phenomenon of the ice breaking up? I remember “mud time” from Iowa, and “snow melt”, and I think I remember some special words from Alaska. I couldn’t tell you what they are, though. LikeLike Hi Linda, We haven’t heard of a special word for the ice breaking up in our area. Thank you for your comment, which I’ve shared with Karl.
