Default ice cuttings

The lake is in a dangerous position right now. We have observed this situation where you have a layer of ice, then above that water and then the snow comes down and leaves apuddle under it and freezes. this makes it into a saw and we have witnessed that it can cut 6" cement cylinders in half.
Great for those of us with boat houses. I think ours gets it worse then others cause it is facing west with exposure to the north
