4/19/08 – The ice thickness keeps growing on Sawbill Lake. Today we measured 24.5″ – up 2″ from yesterday and 4.5″ from the day before! My hunch is that the ice thickness isn’t changing, but it’s clear that The upper 12 – 14″ of ice is much softer and more degraded than it was earlier in the week. So rest assured that progress is being made. This is why it’s so interesting to monitor the ice, because its behavior is a lot more complex than it would appear. – Bill

A better picture of Lee. Compare this picture to the one a few posts below to see how the snow cover has changed.
