Woke up to the bay being frozen over as it got down to –20’c last night, but the main lake is still open water. Had a nice surprise along with the ice and that was hoar frost! The crystal above is 2 1/2” in size and the ice was covered in these crystals.
You can see the fog above the open water as the cold air is quickly cooling the warmer water, relatively speaking! You can’t see much of the main lake from our dock as those are islands on the left, right and even in the far background. I like how we are sheltered in our little bay.
It looks like someone had a big pillow fight and there are feathers all over the ice! :)
I also took some video to try to capture the sounds of the ice and was lucky to capture one good crack! Ice is not quiet at all and is constantly making noise. At about 0:13 you will hear the loud sound that makes me jump, that’s the ice not a gun shot!
