Satellite photo/image: ice freeze-up in Temagami, December 25, 2012  

Freeze-up close

With a steady decline in temperature and a drop off in wind, freeze-up took a leap forward on the big lakes. Lakes Timiskaming, Wanapitei and Temagami, the regular laggards, are open, but they are joined by an unusual companion: northern Smoothwater.

Bob Farr on Bear Island reports that the deep areas in the center of Lake Temagami are closed today.

From the satellite images, it appears only Ferguson Bay on Lake Temagami is still open.
