Jewett Lake | When Will It Freeze?

Watching the lake and its changes.

These pictures were taken on December 2nd. The lake had been frozen over completely at the end of November. 

Then we experienced several days of mighty winds, and all the ice broke up and was pushed to our shore, making beautiful patterns of ice, but not boding well for the future skating rink. When the sun hit these chunks of ice, they looked like some sort of jewel. Very beautiful!

Finally, on Dec 14 everything was frozen, but the ice looked suspicious. Still several brave fishermen had their houses out, supposedly on 8″ thick ice.

Now after many below zero nights the ice is safe and we hope to have some fun out there during the New Year’s weekend.
