The skim of ice that was forming on the lake was broken up by the three days of wind we have had. The following photos taken yesterday at the north end show the lake is clear.
At the dam, the men from R. H. White continued the annual maintenance work – in the cold and wind.
Today the wind has died down but morning temperatures have dropped from yesterday’s teens to the single digits. Was that 9 degrees F this morning? The ice is back today!
This cove will benefit from the drawdown as it fills with an invasive weed called fanwort. http://dnr.wi.gov/invasives/fact/fanwort.htm
