Ice creeps into the Lake of the Ozarks

It’s a February Deep Freeze! This winter brought us snow, ice and sub-zero temperatures that we haven’t seen at the Lake of the Ozarks for several years. Our local station is warning about wind chill advisories, record lows and more snow on the way. “It’s dangerous to go outside!” they say. Good advice – but of course we had to get out to take a few photos!

To capture these photos, we had to bundle up with winter gear and a sense of adventure. The ice and snow formations definitely make for some interesting designs! Below you can see a few different views of ice formations in the water and across the lake.

What a difference a day makes! The photo below was taken on February 11th and the next morning the ice took over. These photos were taken on the Gravois arm of the Lake of the Ozarks near Laurie, Missouri.

Spring will be here next month!

We’re not quite ready to get the boat out on the ice. In fact, we haven’t seen a fishing boat float by for several days. But spring will be here before we know it (hopefully). If you’d like to schedule a trip for warmer weather at the Lake of the Ozarks, let’s do it! Just give me a call or contact me. We’re scheduling now for spring and summer!
