Low temps bring freeze-up

With the temperature dropping to minus 23 C last night, freeze-up accelerated through the night and during the day today. Glen Toogood, Ottertooth's official freeze-up observer, called freeze-up this afternoon. More ice has actually formed than can be seen from the satellite. Clear ice less than an inch thick and lacking snow, does not normally show up, but can be seen on Toogood's photo from Garden Island.
