I drove by the pond and it looked like a 4 wheeler drive around on the snow a bit but it hasn't been cleared off yet. This was around 2pm......

Snow Date option has been put in effect. Please watch video and update your calendar. February 16th, 2019. 6:00 PM. ... See MoreSee Less

We will mark our calendar with the change but let Yeti know: if the ice is good we are still going skating on Sat! Sharp blades, smooth ice, night sky and throw in a few friends and let the magic happen!

Is that Steve Mode(YEti)

Not Yeti No skiing, no hiking This much is true Although it’s not to our liking He really belongs in a zoo He’s been spotted by few He hides deep in the wood Suddenly as if on cue Lurking in our neighborhood Ten feet tall, hairy and smelly His coat is really quite blonde He breaks the thin ice, gathering fish for his belly He’s now nesting at Haumerson’s Pond With the warm weather we’ve seen as of late And the Yeti who seems quite content Thin ice and no snow should end the debate We must postpone our upcoming event So pay close attention, and wait for the sign The Yeti, Sasquatch, or Bigfoot if you please Promises to stick around, and that’s fine While we wait for some snow or deep freeze The date for our evening event has changed Sometime in February, 16th will be the new date Not because of the Yeti, he’s not to be blamed Too much sun or global warming has decided our fate. See you all real soon!

Cute!!

This weekend looks like we may get the weather we need.
Currently there is about 2.5” of ice on the main body of the pond. The North end is very sketchy. My measure this morning was about 1”. I did not stick around there long. There was also a little open area where you go from
Front to back pond. It is not safe. Around the island also has some very sketchy spots. We do not encourage skating yet. We wish we could but it is just not predictable. The water on the Bark River is high enough that it is coming into the pond now through the spillway. This hurts the process. We are looking forward to the upcoming cold weather. Stay tuned and be safe. We encourage people not to throw logs, rocks, boards etc on the pond to check its safety. We need to remove all of these items or it screws up
The ice. We also strongly encourage people not to drill holes in the ice as this also creates dangerous obstacles for skaters. Thanks you all for supporting the cause.

I was watching the weather this morning and saw the cold dip. Made me think of the pond and hoping it will be skate-able soon. Will you provide an overview on what was discussed at the meeting this past weekend? I was curious to know but couldn't make it.

Thanks for the update...patiently waiting to skate!

I was out there the other day and I noticed that why did not see any drill holes

We measured 3.5 in one of the holes?? Has it deteriorated since Saturday?

Such a beautiful place--check this out!!!!

Ice Condition Report: 12/26/18
Attention, the ice at the pond has thinned due to all the warm weather.
There are many open areas along the edges, and we are encouraging the public to use caution.
Once we have a few cold days to build up the ice, we will follow up with this alert and give an update.
We have plenty of time this winter to skate, so let's all be patient and safe.
Thank you.

Ice

How's the I've looking?

Hoping a few days off cold here will make some good ice.....

The ice conditions are slowly improving. There is about 2.5 inches on the main body of the pond but the North end is only about 1” thick. Last Monday it was open water. The center ice has floated with water around the perimeter. Still sketchy on the edges. We will re-measure tomorrow.
