Ok guys, you talked me into shutting down the last feeder running today. Dam, did it get this cold last year? I worried last year about losing my TFS but didn't, so now I have to worry about it again? I am beginning to feel like a worry wort!

Tracy, I log everything that I might need about my pond. It's a hobby and I just enjoy doing it.Last year on New Year Day the air temp at 8am was 60 degrees. Water was 59.5 and I had between 27-30 inch visibility. Seven and eight days later we hit 22 degrees, then 20 degrees.Water temp dropped to record low to 47.5 degrees. 3 days later on 1/11/17 surface temps went back up to 62.75 degrees at 5pm.Never got below 50 degrees again until yesterday when it hit 48.6. I suspect from Sunday thru wendsday I will break all my record lows on the pond!! I'm a true pond stat nerd!! But I enjoy it soooo much!

Flame that is very cool! One day, when I live closer to my place I would LOVE to start keeping records like that.

Pat, that is why I am all the time texting you questions about things. I want to learn. Must have always been a wildlife guy. Even though when I was 18 yrs old I went into mechanics and have made my living in mechanics for a large part of my life and then real estate for almost 20 years...when I first went to college I majored in wildlife management and minored in zoology. Life changed that corse but I believe I am doing now what I always dreamed of doing!! And you guys have taught me a lot!!

Ice on the big pond this morning. It looked funny seeing the ringnecks swim around sheets of ice.

As a side effect of stopping feeding, the GBH have disappeared. The cold water has driven my CNBG away from the banks, and the GBH were waiting on the feeders to throw to draw them back in. With the feeders off, there's nothing for the GBH to snipe.
