Frozen to a depth of more than than three feet, Connors Lake still sloshes and reverberates beneath the ice. As the night grows colder, the surface ice expands, fracturing without rupturing. Great booms and heaving moans emit from the ice sounding more like crashing timpani's in the next room.
Temperature: approximately 28ºF Recording method: Double mid-side located around 30 feet offshore, mic stand on ice.
Skip ahead to 14:00 for the biggest boom.
