Now this ice surface would be pretty hard to skate on let alone walk on. I was down to Kinsmen Beach on Lake Nipissing yesterday afternoon as a snow squall moved in from the west across the lake and was quite surprised to see the shapes of the ice at the beach. It looked like a beach full of ice balls, similar in size to 5 pin bowling balls. There were also a few mounds of these balls further out on the ice, randomly strewn. I have no idea how or why the ice forms were made, or how or why the mounds of ice balls were made.
