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 view from Dunroe Is. on Five Mile Bay. As you can see the whole bay is frozen over. Quite a change in one week. This is Black ice about 2 1/2" thick with 1" of snow. This is the earliest freeze up in the seven years I've lived out here. Taken Dec 17/13
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.
