Ice Noise


Strange sounds in the air.  This afternoon I am sure I heard sounds through the woods from Fish Hook Lake that sounded like ice cracking.  They had the whale sound like nature.  Then I heard one sound like that from Mud Lake.  “Strange happenings” as Shemp said.

Ice Over


Mud Lake is now iced over.  It shows a full light cover of snow on top.  One odd area in the bay shows some marks like someone dragged some thing , but the ice just has to be thin there.

Winter has come.  The lake has been slowly gaining its ice cover.  The water lily bay has had ice for days, then along the north shore.  With the big dip coming this week, the full freeze of the lake should come.

Some 15 swans passed through the other day.  They were in the weeds likely gathering to go South.  Some geese have hung around with them.

The first snow cover came and went, but now the temperatures tell us the snow is here to stay.  That will keep the temperatures down, too.  Today’s storm has the chance of only lightly contributing to things, but the forecasts do vary.
