    Oh geeze how creepy that pic is and the cracking of ice shouldn't be that much of a problem as it is not like you are smashing at the ice with your fist and should not sound that bad underwater .I would think no worse than the splashing of a waterfall or a fountain head .Nice toy but watch out for the nuts on the road 99 and trucks .My pond or waterfall has not frozen once this winter and have had both filters going all winter .I had a scarf but did not think of it ,but gosh wish I would have .Did the next time I went out for wood .

    My pond is pretty much all open and has been for the last week. This week our day time temp is suppose to be in the 40's. Rain and snow.

    Well, finally got a little bit of snow last night. Maybe 1-2" is all, but it's pretty. Sunny by afternoon. And, looks like mid to upper 40's for highs the rest of the week! I just may turn on my bubbler tonght and see if I can get the pond open, at least on the one end, and see if it stays open with the warmer temps. :)
    Oh, and didn't have much to worry about with my snow fence, as the wind was blowing the snow in from the south, and my snow fence is placed north to south. Maybe next time, as our typical winter storms come from the west or northwest.

    Jennywren, I wish I was where you are! It's going to be a rainy day here today, so I opened up my pond with heater (was barely frozen over) and turned on the pump bubbler again. I want the pond opened up, so I can watch the fish again, so will leave it on today to circulate the water and melt that ice away. Once the ice is melted, it will stay that way longer, since we are expecting temps over freezing for the next week at least, maybe 10 days!

    Pond this evening, with the bubbler running all day, is 75% open, so shut the pump off. The ice by the waterfall is not very thick, and I would guess it will be gone in the next couple of days with high 40's for highs during the day. Supposed to be sunny on Sat., so I'm looking forward to the sunshine again.

    This weather we are having right now is more confusing than fall weather ,you just don't know what to expect from one day to the next and what to do with the pond .

    As soon as my arizona pumps get here the pond is being turned on. If it decides to freeze up again, I can turn it off, hang a light bulb over the pump , it will be fine.

    I really think it is the end of any real hard freeze for this year ,maybe frost but thats it .I'm thinking you will be safe .I finally ordered new cell phones so can't wait they come today .I got one called wine thought it was fitting since my other phone finally died at a winery and won't charge anymore ..I have to clean the pond filters today and finish a new garden so hope UPS gets here soon .Weather is already looking great outside .Just went out to hang up laundry in nice fresh air ,smells great out .

    We had so much rain yesterday and thru last night I thought I'd wake up on an island! It's 48F now and wind is making it feel colder. Sure doesn't feel like Spring is near to me!
    They are saying we could get some snow this coming weekend. Can't last tho not that cold. Not raining at the moment which is a nice change but still windy. Will be 31F tonight.
    Sure like this weather add-on for firefox!
