watching the lake freeze, part 2

I am finding this so interesting. This year we have these little ice crystals forming on top of the lake as it freezes.

It is an ever changing light show as the sun moves across the sky.

And twice this morning I have heard what I think are ice quakes. It sounds like someone slammed the front door really hard but in a kind of muffled sort of way. Oh and the condo shakes a little. As you can imagine ice quakes can be hard on houses.
