Satellite photo/image: ice freeze-up in Temagami, December 26, 2012


With the continuing deep freeze our benchmark lake for freeze-up, Temagami, is frozen.

Yesterday only Ferguson Bay on the lake remained open. Today, we see no open water on the satellite image and call today as freeze-up.

Lakes Wanapitei and Timiskaming remain open as they normally ice over later. Smoothwater's condition is not detectable.
