Brush away the clouds. Does this look familiar?

This is reminiscient of the open water on Lake Temagami on New Year's Day in the winter of 2002-03. That year the last open water closed on January 10.

Temperatures have tumbled well below freezing in the last two days. We'll see.



      Recent freeze-up dates








Black open water or thin, clear ice
Dull/ dark blue thin ice with little or no snow cover
Bright turquoise thick ice, snow-covered ice or snow on unforested land  (e.g. clearcuts, farmland)
