snow is like 90% air. vrs ice thats 90% water. so mileage varies
I can finally see my fish at the bottom of the pond, all made it other than the one that is caught in the skimmer box...it's a great relief to finally see them after so long
The water is so clear, I can even see the tiny baby that hid all Summer long, I'm so glad he made it!
Ahh that was the little cave dweller baby, glad he made it @Gemma
We have liquid water on top of the ice layer. About 4 inches down is a layer of ice, no clue how thick but still pretty solid. The small ponds are still frozen, but melting. Dropping temps again tomorrow, will see if it refreezes.
Pond just gets plenty of rain water most all the time now. Ho hum
I saw some of the fish swimming down in the shallow end, checking it out. Pond water is 40f right now.
The first loop pond, small, still frozen, edges are melted. I am waiting for it to melt see if the 3 fish I saw in it managed to survive. They managed to get there via the garden hose feed from the big pond.
Yup that image describes him perfectly!
I can't believe you remember lol sometimes I wonder if people on here remember me, let alone what I post
Sometimes we get confused. I messed up on your chicken coop, I remember that one. Hard to keep up w/ our own lives sometimes let alone others,lol!
My pond is ice free right now. Water is a little murky. I lost 2 babies from last year. One bigger fish seems to be struggling. All others ok. The several fish I saw under the ice that I thought sure were dead were not. Still more winter to come so hopefully all continue to do ok. Mild weather for the time being but we have to get through February!
The pond thawed today, I saw a flash of two or three of mine, not a great view, but enough to know they live!
My little ponds froze up again. Big ponds look like water, need to stick hand in and see if the ice layer is gone.
The sun came up, it is 18f the big ponds have a ice layer again, but most likely just a thin layer.
Both ponds here thawed completely. Don't think they will stay that way for long. Cold weather coming back Monday.
Mine has been unfrozen for awhile .It has been in the 50's and up .Tomorrow I am headed to NC and supposed to be in the mid 60's
Sorry you lost fish! Hope the rest of them make it!
I SAW MY FISH! We finally have a very thin layer of ice (which got covered with about 7 inches of snow last Tuesday) and this morning there's a hole big enough to see to the bottom and THERE ARE FISH! Swimming slowly, but definitely alive and looking great!
