Slow Early Ice Development

11/28/23 – Ice on Sawbill has been in a constant ebb and flow this fall. The lake has been ice covered as far as the eye can see multiple times now, but as soon as the wind picks up (which has been often) large swaths bust back open. Temperatures have been quite cold however, so as soon as we have a stretch of calm weather I expect ice should form quickly. -Jessica

A surprising amount of open water at the canoe landing late yesterday afternoon.
Currently the wind is minimal so ice was able to form overnight (picture taken first thing this morning).
