Snow depth report: March 31 / Old Woman Bay popular in winter

The snow depth report for March 31 is 142.3 cm/ 56 in. This is almost the same as the report on March 24. We had lots of snow in the past week (20 cm/8 in.?), but the snow is starting to settle with the warmer temperatures.

One of the park staff took their ice auger out on Red Rock Lake: the fish are safe.
(one could dig a hole in the snow and then use the ice auger to get to water).

Word has gotten out about the ice caves and ice arches along the shore of Lake Superior, north of Old Woman Bay. Here are a couple of pictures from March 29 showing the vehicles parked at Old Woman Bay and the people coming and going to the ice caves.
WARNING: the ice caves and arches are getting unstable due to warm temperatures and rain – be safe and view them from a distance – do not go inside the caves or under the arches – they could collapse at any time.
