It’s obvious now the waters of the lake are not what they were. It’s an annual cycle. A few short months ago the water was welcome and enticing relief from hot and humid days. And now in November it is dark, cold, and even threatening.
I was on the lake late last week and the only activity seemed to be the contractors rushing to make arrangements for the pending freeze-up. There are hints the right combination of calm and cold air will soon have the lake skimmed with ice. Even this morning, the smaller bays have icy rims.
With snow in the forecast, it looks like winter has found us again.
