Wawa Lake is Frozen at end of 2015 – Barely

0

IMG_1217 On December 31st, 2015 Wawa-news wasn’t sure if Wawa Lake was entirely frozen over. If not that would have been a record. As it was it was still a record as the previous latest frozen date was December 25, 2001. [AFG_gallery id=’11’] At the time these photos were taken, there were only a few holes about 3/4 down the lake by the shore. The ice has been thick enough by the shore, but Wawa-news would advise against going any further out.


Andy Stevens compiled the chart below, but there are dates missing. If you have information that would make this chart complete, please email brenda at wawa-news.com.
