I wonder for how long. The lake can skim over with a sharp dip in temp, and then winds break up the ice. When we went down to the lakeshore Saturday morning (we're just north of the village of Aurora), the shore was covered with shards of ice, clear as glass-and then the water was indeed frozen over, but just a thin sheet, about 100 yards out.

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.
