Pic from today. 24 hours after the pic in post above. You can now clearly see the hole opening up. Very interesting. Clearly, after the ice dome is broken, the aerator does not have a problem enlarging the hole. Other diffusers must still be domed over. Again, the hole that opened up first is diffuser that is closest to shore.
