Default Ice skating party at Lake Fredrick!

Went down for a walk this AM at 0600 and look what I found. First one is Lake Fredrick with Ice over 3/4 of the lake. Second one is Salt Water in Sherman Cove Between West launch ramp and floating dock. Those white spots are air under the Ice. I threw a small piece of wood and it slid on top of the ice. Hey Al Gore come look at this global warming.:doh

You know it's cold when saltwater freezes. This is the first time since I can remember that we have had saltwater ice in our area. Pretty crazy.

I came here in 1976 and some time between then and 1980 the wet slip was frozen from the back side all the way out about 3/4s of the way toward the bay. The block of ice would ride up and down with the tide until the sun melted it around 1000.

Thanks Ron You are always on top of things happening around here. I would have never thought about the ice. We are heading offshore in a day or two. Now I have to post an ice watch on the way out. Let's see floating steel tanks,logs,nets and now floating ice. What next. It's getting crazy around. I feel like deadliest catch lately. LOL. Gene
