This year has seen an aberration in the normal process of the Seasons.

November and December warmer than past years.

Open water on our lake until January 6.

Mallard Ducks walking up the shore and visiting the ground under the bird feeder in early January to feast on the dropped sunflower seeds.

The lake has been ready to freeze for the past three weeks.

It made an attempt in mid-December but that ice cover disappeared with a couple of days of warm winds from the South.

A full moon, calm air and a -12C night was enough to make ice.

Yesterday morning the lake woke up with its winter blanket of ice.
