Mohican Lake froze over last night, much earlier than last year when we had warmer than normal temperatures through mid-January. Yesterday, ice covered the cove and the channel; today, a thin layer of ice covers the entire lake.
However, the lake hasn't frozen solid. You can see open spots here and there. If the air warmed and it rained overnight, the ice might easily thaw. Nevertheless, today's the day the lake froze, and you can mark it in your calendar.
Compare yesterday with today.
