Freedom—December 29, 2021—It has been a warm winter so far, with the lake freezing over at night, but open water on Broad Bay by Noon.
Finally, on Christmas Eve, Friday, 12/24/2021, the ice did not melt, and we had a white blanket of new snow from shore to shore. The snow remains today.
Water level on the main lake is almost a foot over normal winter level, but is going down most days.
There remains an adequate but low water flow out of the dam to keep one of the electric generators operating.
Ice out is only 3-4 months away. It was April 7 last spring.
