Think about the slow ice formation

Discussion in 'Hard Water Discussions' started by Shortdrift, Jan 21, 2005.

  1. Yes, we are having a lot of real cold weather that should equate to ice making but....we also have a load of melt flowing into the lakes that is probably warmer than the lake water plus the current it makes reduces the ability to form new ice. This may also explain why there is such a variance in thickness along with the open water concept. Just my thoughts on this whole questionable ice discussion. I for one will not be on any questionable ice less than 4" thick.
     
  2. 4" of good clear ice for me too...

    In my area I have noticed many are flowing fast. If all that warm water is flowing into a lake the current must be moving the water and that doesn't make good ice. At mogadore the father out you go out into the main lake the thinner it gets. From 4+" to 1" at 100' out.
     
  5. same thing with the lakes that i was at today
