Last evening I stayed up way too late working on a quilting project. When I finally crawled into bed at 2 am I was kept awake by the groaning lake sounds. For those of you who have never been around a lake as it freezes in the fall it makes all kinds of groaning and cracking sounds as it makes ice. Usually you hear this in the fall more than the spring but last night’s temperature dropped to around 20 degrees after a week of nearly 50 degrees. So the lake started making ice again. It moaned and groaned all night long. This is not a soft quiet groaning but rather loud because you can hear it easily with all the doors and windows closed and nearly 125′ from the lake. This morning when I walked down to the lake to take the picture it was still groaning but not as loudly since the temps are near 40 degrees now. It won’t be long now before the ice goes out on the lake. In our area it usually happens around April 15 each spring. I can hardly wait to hear the waves crashing on the shore.
