How much ice can be made in 24hrs.
« on: Dec 07, 2010, 09:08 AM »
Just wanted to post this chart in anticipation of first Ice.  Obviously this does not account for numerous factors such as wind and size of the body of water.  Just thought it was a neet idea anyhow.

What chart?
I've got the itch... No, not that one. It's the good kind.
It's pronounced "fay-len" (the x's are silent)

Hopin to get out saturday myself.  Thursday/thursday night will make or break it with temps looking anywhere from -5 to 10 depending on location.  As long as the pond your looking at has a layer of ice before thursday you might be able to make it out.

I can make a couple of bags worth if I have room in the freezer. ;D

The main thing is the wind. If the water is choppy, the ice can't form uniformly.
Bring on the calm and the cold !

Unfortunately, any ice that already existed probably has a bunch of snow on it...causing slow (and poor) ice-making.

Just went and checked the pond I had lined up for saturday.  Small pond, less than 75 acres here in york county and it had 3.5 inches of ice 15 ft out from shore where I tested it.  Cant wait for saturday!

Not to pry red but I live in york county too and I was just curious what town this pond is in so I can track the ice growth down to a science. Thanks a bunch!
