I made it into town by snowmobile today for the first time this season. This is Five Mile Bay looking toward Dunroe Is. The ice in the center ranges from 5 to 6". There are patches of slush 2 to 3" thick. The ice near the shore is 6 to 8" thick and the slush has mostly frozen. Taken Feb.15/16
Renee and Jim Hoculik's place on Victoria Island. Taken Feb.15/16
George and Danna Bowersox's place on Malaren Is. Taken Feb.15/16
Steve Sprague's cottage on Five Mile Bay at the entrance to the Indian Dock. Taken Feb.12/16
8" of snow fell last night and today. There is now 12" of snow on the ice and it is starting to get slushy. The weight of the snow sinks the ice allowing the water to come up turning the snow to slush. Over the next week this will freeze solid making thicker ice. Taken Feb.12/16
Brent, only 3 to 5 inches of ice in PS Harbour, pressure crack from NW corner of our docks running towards OPP boat house right to open water, Gerry. From Gerry Shipman at Sound Boat Works. I heard someone sunk a snowmobile in the harbour last week.
