As of noon today, Cayuga was pretty much frozen from Chris's hill north.  
Chris's hill is the big rise north of Levanna, if one doesn't know local names. 
 South of that, the lake was a combination of frozen patches and open patches.  
This is the most ice I've seen since 1994, and then it didn't last, since 1994 
was windy, though it was also cold.

The full answer about the reluctance of Cayuga and especially Seneca to 
completely freeze over is a bit complicated, but a primer on the physical 
limnology can be read here:
