The view from the entrance of the Indian Dock Channel onto Five Mile Bay.  I found 4" of ice with 2" of slush under and 2" of ice below in this spot.  Another couple day of -20C temperatures should freeze this to a solid 8".  Taken Dec.30/13

The cold weather has made a lot of ice in the last few days.  The high yesterday and today was -15C.  The low was - 22C last night.  About 12" of snow has fallen.  I now have 7" in front of my place in the middle of the bay.  As you can see there is ice from Redner bay all the way to Amanda.
