river flow into Oxtongue Lake

Picture taken today of Oxtongue Lake, it clearly shows the river has entered into the main part of the lake, it will only take a few days more to be totally across then the wind will do it's job and start to break up the main ice.
Oxtongue is the first Lake in the area to freeze up in November, that's when we can safely start to ice skate. Becusae of the river flow, Oxtongue is the first to have full open water.
