Lakes

December 10, 2017
The process of a lake icing over is not always a continuous one. Ice begins to form, but may recede or break up with warming temperatures, a strong wind or both. Subtle currents, underwater springs, a trickle of stream in-flow, even a beaver's underwater highway from its lodge to the shore, can affect ice thickness.  PineandLakes.com Illustration

About 85 residents of Kimble, Ossawinnamakee and surrounding lakes gathered Tuesday, Aug. 22, to learn about the Department of Natural Resource's plan to remove a navigation barrier between the two lakes in Kimble Creek. The DNR issued a permit to place boulders in Kimble Creek to block navigation from Ossie. The boulders were placed in 2004, and the permit for them was good for five years.
