This morning, Saturday, March 28th, Clark’s Lake was very vocal. I went out on the porch about ten o’clock, and could not believe the sounds that were coming from the lake. The northwest wind was trying to push the ice onshore, and the ice was constantly booming and ringing like one of those large bonze bells from a Japanese temple. I have heard the occasional boom or crack before, but this was a constant sound, which I could hear coming from all directions, while standing on Eagle Point Road.

Not much ice is building up yet; it’s still about an inch thick.  About 18 inches stacked up where it was trying to come ashore. But the music it was making was wonderful!
