Ice conditions on the North Arm of Lake Temagami are hazardous. In many places, the ice is less than 3.5 inches thick with up to ten inches of slush on top, reports Jason Pigeau of Keewaydin Camp.
Holes have appeared north of Rabbitnose Island and water gushes out from the weight of the snow. The water movement is eroding and expanding the hole diameters.
This is the result of a big snowfall right after freeze-up that has insulated the lake from the cold.
"Basically, it is still the original 3.5 inches of black ice from the first freeze," emailed Pigeau.
