When the lake froze over 2 weeks earlier this year I thought we might be in for a rough Winter. In hindsight, I am thinking maybe the lake froze earlier because the aeration led to lower water temps earlier than previous years?? At this point we are wayyyy behind on snow up there. The snow in 2016 showed up later than the snow in 2015. Here are some pics to compare snow levels in 2016 versus 2017.


11.30.2016 - notice the boats and peninsula are now buried. Probably 2' of snow on the ground. Windmills already unable to keep holes open in the ice.

12.1.2017 - Pic from yesterday! Clearly looking like easier conditions than last year. I'm sure mother nature will punish me for calling her out.
