Lakes
« on: December 10, 2003, 06:52:16 pm »

Do the lakes in NH freeze solid (as in solid enough to drive vehicles on)?  I would guess that some of the smaller ones do.  How about the big one, Winnipesaukee?

The smaller ones definately do.  Even in the south -- there's a small pond (Jackson's pond) in Hudson that has various races (insanctioned) on it yearly.  Of course, every 5 years or so there's the idiot who drives out before it's safe and falls through.  I wonder how the scuba diving is there in the summer?

Thanks, that's what I expected.  I lived in New London, CT for 3 1/2 years and we would get ice in the Thames river, so I was sure that lake up there should freeze.  I still wonder about the big lake though.

Winnepesaukee does freeze if it gets cold enough to do so. The larger a lake is, the bigger its thermal sink, so the longer it takes to get it cold enough to freeze over.

Thanks for the info Mike, though I didn't require the third grade lesson in Heat Transfer and Fluid Theory.

Sorry, I have no way to know what your educational level is. I try to err on the side of caution, especially considering some of the posts on this forum...
