Lake Temagami Snow Cover from space

Yesterday 12/12 was the first time in weeks that  I could capture the Lake without thick cloud cover from the NASA MODIS polar orbiting afternoon satellite pass. Lake T. is snow covered. I am not sure how thick the ice is. Wanapetei ( a deep lake) is unfrozen. Nippissing is also snow covered. When I get a good Infrared image, will post.
