November 20, 2014:  Morning Fog on Deer Lake, trying to freeze


Next morning, November 21, the entire northern bay is frozen (and other protected areas), but stiff wind have it broken up by noon.

In the photo above you can see ice (with sunlight reflecting) in the upper left; there is open wavey water out to the right; the middle-foreground (darker area) has broken ice swirling; and near shore (below the trees) there is a layer of compressed ice-cubes up against a snow covered ice sheet pushed and buckled against the shore.

Ice-in happened the night of November 24-5; skating and ice-boating began a few very cold days and nights later when the ice reached more than 4 inches.
