Where is my winter?

So... it is now December, and although we have seen frost and ice, we still have had no measurable snow! This is unacceptable nature. The top two pictures were taken last Friday of ice on the top of the pond at Baltimore Woods. The last is from Beaver Lake.

This chunk was about 8 inches from tip to tail, there were hundreds of these in the pond.

This is a little scary, thousands of birds on such a small lake put a large nutrient load on this system. Unfortunately, many people do not like large amounts of birds on more popular bodies of water and so, the birds are chased to these smaller more easily affected areas.
