    Let the dog out this morning and looked over Lake Rockwell.TOTAL SKIM ACROSS THE WHOLE LAKE.Hope this is the beginning of an early ice season.Lets keep the fingers crossed............Mark
     
  2. If it stays, it'll the earliest ice that I can ever remember
     

  3. i seen the 10 day forecast, says 40's for the 1st week of dec,,,, what do u think jon,,? will the nite times temps be cold enough to keep ice
     
  4. Wind will play a major factor in ice formation also.

    Even if daytime air temps are above freezing, the lake water surface temps will continue to drop due to melting snow.
     
  5. lets hope to be out my newyears
     
  6. Best case scenario would be ice on Old State Park within the next 7-14 days. We'll see.
