However, I shall fix this problem. I'm too stubborn not to. Just wanted to let you know that if you don't hear from me for a few days, no comments on your blog etc, it's because I'm battling to get back all my bookmarks, emails, links, and photos. Yes, I'm devastated that I may have lost my photos. In the back of my mind I'm thinking there must be a solution. Why else have I been backing up if I can't restore my computer? And please don't tell me I have to go back and type in every single bookmark!
While I'm feeling sorry for myself, please give a loud round of applause to Janet Johnson, who was the closest in guessing when the lake would freeze over.
We experienced a cold snap and voila, that's all it took to freeze our lake. This year it happened after daybreak so we were able to watch. The ice was so clear, I had to call a few neigbhours to see if they had frozen ice out front, or if it just looked that way from here. Without a breeze it's difficult to tell.
A couple hours before that, a fish jumped out of the water and started flopping around on the ice. He was at least one and a half pounds. My neighbour called because he knows I love to take snaps. By the time I grabbed my camera and got out to the deck, an eagle was escaping with the fish. You gotta be quick.
Thanks to everyone for participating. We'll do this again in the spring.http://cluculzwriter.blogspot.com/2011/12/lake-froze.html
