ice_disc_33225So I couldn’t help  but pay the Heart River ice disc a visit, since, I heard that it was frozen in place after the recent cold spells.  That’s true; it’s frozen in place.  But I have a hunch.

I spent a couple of hours in this area taking various ice and tree photos, and saw the area of open water spread dramatically.  The friend who was with me surmised that the area will be thawed in the next day or two.  With low temps remaining above freezing, I think he’s right.

The thinnest part of the ice will melt first, and that is the perimeter of the disc.  If that holds true, the thing could be back spinning before we know it!  Only time will tell.  Whether it spins again or not, the ice in this area won’t be around much longer..
