Day 6 post freeze up.  Yesterday went for the "across the lake walk", drilling as we go,(or laughing all the way) to where the main trail would usually be.  Found a lot of ice at 5 inches and some holes where dry.  Maximum drill depth is 6 inches.  Overnight  the ice could be heard "booming" and this morning we have a lot more pressure cracks which have a fresh coat of ice.  These cracks can be seen on the web cam quite easily.  Shiny = fresh.  Shiny from the water coming through.  Weather permitting the "check the ice run" should be soon.
