Lake Mildred Area
FEBRUARY 14 - BITTER COLD FEBRUARY - A big change from January's weather; this past week has barely risen above 0 degree highs, and weather danger alerts are almost daily, warning of wind chills of -40. Day after day. Time to catch up on your reading.
JANUARY 25 - MILD JANUARY CONTINUES - Not much snow for the snowmobilers, and not as much ice on the lake as usual (about a foot of ice right now, in most places) but the roughly 8 inches of snow now on the ground is enough for a little XC skiing or snowshoeing, or even walking on the lake (especially if you walk in the packed down snowmobile/ATV tracks).
2020 (Really, this year should just be erased!)
DECEMBER 1 - LAKE MILDRED FROZE OVER LAST NIGHT -
After a couple weeks of light freezes and partly frozen bays, last night the lake surface finally froze completely over. Whether it stays frozen or not is another matter, but given the current forecast, it just might.

??? - CLEAR LAKE ROAD NEEDS CULVERT?
Now that the water is high, it has become quite obvious that when Clear Lake Road was constructed & filled across the natural Clear Lake/Maud Lake channel or wetland -without a culvert- then Maud Lake & Clear Lake were "cut off" from each other by the road filling. It certainly appears that there should be a culvert put in place so that the natural ebb & flow of water connecting the two water bodies was restored. 100 years ago we didn't realize the effect that our bulldozing and road filling had on neighboring water bodies. We do now. Looking at an overhead view of the area (such as the County GIS map) shows that Maud Lake was clearly part of the Mildred "Chain" of lakes.
