I don't give it that much longer for people to be on Harris bay (probably not safe but they'll be there).

I work in Cleverdale, I always stop and look in the morning.  Sometimes its hard to see how far out the skim is but it's def. making ice!!! A week ago it looked great but the wind blew it around.

Avg.  date is Jan. 21.  I think that will def hold true this year.  We fished until early April last year.  So that means, Lord willing, we'll have a little over 2 months to fish once she freezes.

The average freeze date is when the entire lake is frozen, including the North Basin which always takes longer to freeze. It takes a lot of cold weather to freeze LG and we haven't had nearly enough. Many smaller lake aren't even ready yet. :-\

I hear you.  I live by the North Basin, but I'm not getting my hopes up yet.  I'll be happy when I can get on a bay or two at the southern end.  My point is that I believe we'll be doing that sooner than most people think.

and snow on the ground prior to a lake freezing yields colder low temps at night.

problem is with the cold comes the 10,000 mile per hour wind witch doesn't help.

Yoo too huh?  Whew, that whole inch was a killer.  The snow today did nothing to the lake, the snow tomorrow won't do anything either.  With just a little skim here and there at last check in the bays and southern end, the snow will just blow right in the lake.  Wind coming Saturday, not good- but temps right around or below 0 Saturday and Sunday nights should get the bays locked up.  Main lake is another story, still need a good week of temps like that.
Thanks for the update.  I'm hoping to be on a bay by the 21st.
