Surprise! The lake is frozen

LAKEVILLE — On Sunday, Jan. 13, prior to the cold snap of Sunday, Jan. 20, and Monday, Jan. 21, lake watcher Don Mayland declared “ice-in” on Lake Wononscopomuc in Lakeville.
“For a while this winter I was beginning to think I would be out of work. I did not feel like we would see ice on Lakeville Lake all winter.  But, the last few days of cold and no wind has done the trick, at least for the moment.”
Mayland cautioned that the ice is not necessarily ready for walking or skating.

Hoo me?

Compass Arts And Entertainment Editor Anne Day spied this barred owl as she drove up her road in Salisbury on Saturday, Jan. 19. The owl sat calmly and waited as Day pulled out a long-lensed camera and took multiple photos. Even though her dog, Lola, was barking fiercely from the back seat, the owl maintained its calm demeanor, and didn’t move even after she got out of the car to get closer.
