Cold Weather Pond

Frozen-over biofalls

With our recent cold snap, the pond has completely frozen over except for where the the deicer sits (and that was mostly frozen over this morning). It takes a good long while for the biofalls to get a coating of ice, but the photo above shows that it’s been cold enough for long enough. The water is still flowing under there, though the ice buildup has meant that I’ve had to top off the water (via the skimmer, which has been mostly free of ice) a couple of times. If we get the predicted thaw this weekend, the pond will be overflowing!
