The recent deep freeze has quickly added depth to the ice on the lake.  BJ Lyons tested the ice in three different locations this morning and found the ice on average to be 6 inches.  One spot was as deep as 8 inches; another, 4 inches.  BJ’s test took place about 100 feet from shore in the Lakeview West/Eagle Point Road area.  He comments “the ice seems quite brittle, probably caused by the cold temperature and how quickly it froze.”  He adds the note of caution–it’s too soon to trust the ice yet.  John Deming viewed the video and commented “conditions could be treacherous, at best…could be open spots.” 

Here’s BJ’s drone video of Clark Lake this morning, starting west and moving east.
