The many faces and Sounds of the Lake

Hi all,

We are well into early winter on the south end of Lake Dunmore. The north end is still open though the area from Waterhouses to Songa skimmed over last night it didn’t hold through the day today in spite of temperatures in the teens. We’ll have to see what tonight brings. We still have birds out there and I’ll try to get a better look tomorrow and hopefully see what they are.

This picture from Diane D. isn’t of faces obviously, and it isn’t Dunmore either but it could have been. This is on Champlain in Addison where it looks like winter is trying to get a toehold too.

From Ashley we see Dunmore 3 days ago, still with a dusting of snow.

Same view yesterday, now covered with rainwater.

Late yesterday afternoon, the cold returned with a vengeance and I so wish you all could hear the sounds the lake has been making for the last 24 hours. The groaning as the ice expands is usually intermittent but other than a little quiet time midday has been almost non-stop. I’m checking with the younger generation to see if they can help me record it and if so, a recording you will get. In any case, we are iced in solid across the south end and John E. measured 6” in front of them this afternoon. Stay warm folks. Mike
