On January 13 the weather turned upside-down.  "All the snow has melted on the ice leaving pools of water," said Bob Farr in a news brief that day. "A good deal of the snow disappeared from the land also, and it is difficult to believe that it is almost mid-January in Temagami." Ron Miller estimated there was two inches of water and four inches of ice at the spot in the above photo.

The next day, it froze. Healy's photos were taken from Garden Island looking up the North Arm.
