Daily Satellite Pictures!

Just as I was looking for a way to show how much of Lake of the Woods is still covered in ice, I got a message from Tim K. with a link to Satellite Photos of Lake of the Woods. How cool is that?

There’s a catch, but it’s a small one: the satellite pictures are only useful on sunny days, so you have to hunt through the available dates to find a clear shot. The link above took me to an April 29 image and all the more recent ones were obscured by cloud cover. Hey, it’s been that kind of a spring.

Note: I just tried this link on my smartphone, and the page with the satellite picture was not displayed all that well. The same might apply to tablets – I don’t think the web page is optimized for mobile devices.

  1. Hi Tim,
    Thank you for the great blog.
    I have been living on the lake for the last 43 years and this is the latest I have seen ice this solid.
    I broke my personal record by getting to my outpost 5 miles south of Tranquil Channel by snowmobile on April 21st.
    Please stop by and sign the Bar at the Old Pilots Pub. Only Pilots can sign.
    All the best!
