I’ve been puzzling over the appearance of Falcon Lake and West Hawk in the recent satellite pictures. I wasn’t sure if those lakes were open, or covered in very poor ice, so I asked my brother to take a look on his way to Winnipeg. He stopped to take this panoramic shot of Falcon Lake.
You can click on it to zoom in. The ice looks rotten, as if it should be gone tomorrow or Tuesday.
For other people’s reports on ice conditions, check the comments section. If you went boating in the Lake of the Woods or Whiteshell area this weekend, you’re invited to make a comment yourself.
The comments form doesn’t take attachments: if you want to send a picture, use the email address on the ABOUT page. Don’t forget to include your name as you would like it to appear on the acknowledgement.
