The lake must be right at 32 degrees, as the ice comes and goes with air temperature fluctuations. This time around, however, it is taking the opposite approach from last week, freezing over the center of the lake, and leaving the edges open.
Rather dreary looking, isn't it?
But then the sun came up this morning, and brightened up the world with a pink sunrise.
As the sun warmed the air and the wind came up the ice started to retreat, and by noon the entire broad-expanse of the lake was ice-free.
A good week of cold weather would get it completely frozen; maybe after Monday there will be enough cold nights in a row.
