So the Aurora water dept. found some water and are slowly pumping it into Aurora . . .very good right? Not so fast folks.this can lead to a few not so good/fun things. First on my mind is weak or fake ice/shore access. If the lake goes up enough,there is new ice at the edge and that's where you need to pay attention .I have seen people go through the ice on the edge so many times . . .well it was solid this morning when I walked out! . . .the ice on the edge can be much thinner for many reasons . . . .Add to that a north shore that has southern sun shine all day and the sun can warm the ice from solar heat of the ground below the ice close to shore . . .another way that shore ice can get soft fast.Last,but not least . . .know where the water gets pumped in to at Aurora,The ice in that area can be weak from warmer water than the lakes water.
I spoke to a ranger today,he said it will take till next spring to get the lake back to normal pool.
