Bemidji area lakes are making ice despite the snow
Ice conditions are improving quickly with the cold temperatures, even with all the snow on the lakes.
All snow is not created equal as far moisture content. The snow that fell in the Bemidji area this past week had less moisture because it was so cold when it snowed.
Light, fluffy snow does not create the same problems on the lakes as heavy wet snow, which falls when temperatures are warmer and closer to the melting point for water.
