If you’ve missed the DamCam, you have company. Technical problems have kept it down for almost three weeks. Part of the DamCam concept is to keep you up to date on the condition of the lake as the seasons change. So here is an update on where we stand.
The lake is mostly frozen over with few remaining areas of open water. About a foot of snow fell over the weekend. In spite of frigid temperatures, the snow tends to act as an insulator so stronger ice forms more slowly. Overnight from Sunday to Monday, the temperature dipped to zero. By early afternoon Monday, it had risen to 22 degrees. Winds were light so the early morning wind chill wasn’t as dramatic as it could have been.
Water is flowing over the dam, so that tell us that water levels are healthy. Hopefully the DamCam will be back in operation soon, and you’ll be able to check it out for yourself!
