    Snow also adds weight. Weight that can push down the ice.
    I've gone out to try and shovel snow off the pond and found 6 inches of slush.
    As the snow pushes down the ice, pond water is displaced and flows on top of the existing ice.
    When the temperature gets colder at night, that slush freezes and I have an extra 6 inches of ice overnight.
    Fighting mother nature can be expensive so I try not to and go with the flow.;)
