That looks like Cayuga Lake froze completely at intervals of 20, 10, 30, 19, 9, 20, and 8 years between when the white settlers arrived and when that article was published in 1912. It would be surprising if there were then a gap of over a century.

A. R. Cahn in "The freezing of Cayuga Lake in its relation to bird life". Auk 29:437-444 reports that the lake was completely frozen over in 1796, 1816, 1826, 1856, 1875, 1884, 1904, and 1912. A couple of these were thought due to volcanic eruptions in other parts of the world.Steve Fast--Cayugabirds-L List Info:Archives:Please submit your observations to eBird!--
