20160125 Cold Snap Jan 10-11

Following the January thaw we had a cold snap which thickened the ice and stirred up some lake effect snow …

Big (Gereaux) Lake froze over:

P1740073-1

The edges of the ditches ice moved out into the streamflow …

P1740082-1-2

Byng Inlet froze over, locking St Amant’s dock poles into the ice, as “lake effect streamers” indicated what was to come:

P1740087-1

The busy beaver featured in two previous posts severed the birch tree but it  hung up in the adjacent ash tree and a pole wire.

P1740089-1

The lake effect snow was serious at times….

P1740111-1

Blowing snow on the Old Still River Road:

P1740141-1

Some cold clear hours  freezing over the mouth of the Still  River:

P1740153-1-2

And ice floes floating down the Naiscoot at Twin Rivers:

P1740162-1

Clear evening skies, indicating another night to tighten up the streams and ditches.

P1740168-1

It almost seemed as though Mother Earth was getting prepped for the major snowfall on Jan 12-13.
