It looks like a bunch of snow fell overnight. Hopefully this doesn't have a huge impact on ice conditions.

My friend in Soudan said they got 9" but the Tower website said the official total was only 3.8".  Don't know what the true snowfall was but it does look like Vermilion is a mess.  I hope to get up there the first week in December if my recovery goes well.

I measured 8" of snow as well in Pike Bay area.  Heavy wet snow too. That 3.8 was a measurement taken by a weather observer at around 9 pm on Wednesday night and more obviously fell since that time.  Lost power for 6 hours from 10 pm Wednesday evening until 4 a.m. Thursday.

Thanks for the confirmation.  The 3.8" report was posted Thursday at 10am so I thought it would have been the storm total.  Makes sense that it was recorded during the storm.  Will be a mess on the lake for quite some time.  Will be interesting to see how bad it is when I go up on December 3.

Pike Bay currently has on average 9 inches of ice. Of that 1-3 are refroze slush from the snow that fell last week. Been a few guys fishing off McKinley Park. Also saw a quad out there. Not sure of ice conditions out there. As of right now it's all bare ice and very slick.

Punched a few holes in front of our place in Daisy Bay yesterday, 7-7.5” of ice.  Didn’t get much snow out of yesterday’s storm, about 1” of snow on the lake.

Pulling with a 1 ton?

There was a hint of sarcasm with the 1 ton comment.  If you actually read reports from around the state and particularly @JerkinLips detailed info above, you might gather that hardly any lakes in the state are ready for plowed roads and wheelhouses.  Red might the exception.

 

I could be wrong about the big V but less than a foot of ice with slush on it doesn’t sound like it’ll be ready by this weekend even with this cold snap.

 

Be safe out there.

-32 degree weather will freeze all the slush out there. There is 11-13” of ice. The only problem with getting a wheel house out right now is the snow. There is enough ice for a half ton and 16’  ice castle. I’ve put mine out several times on 10” of ice with my half ton with no problems at all.
