Interestingly, the "relief" hole that opens by the shore is not the closest shore to the diffuser. The hole opens approximately 100 feet from the diffuser. Only thing I can think of is the ice must lift a little more in that area. I don't know for sure how long it takes for the hole to appear at the shore, I think it must vary with ice thickness. I can tell you it takes a lot longer than when there is no doming and the hole appears over the diffuser.
