I often wonder how much ice is made when the temp gets below zero.

Obviously it depends on snow cover, size of lake and possible underwater currents, but let's pick on Granby.

About how much ice was made there in the last couple days?

I looked into that issue a while back, predicting ice growth based on temperature. It's a complicated formula and I gave up! :D

I just heard on 9 News that the temp in Walden last night was -58!

I saw Walden's weather on Intellicast...
Temp was -44 with wind chill at -58

Like zman said - felt like Minnesota when I was a kid.

Tabernash actually received the Nod for the coldest temp. It was -49 degrees. Should of cleared up that granby slush for a few days.

I'm curious as to where you got that info. I am about four miles from Tabernash, approximately 400 feet higher, and have a personal weather station. My low was -33.6° and the mean temperature for the day was -18.9°. I know from past experience that on a clear night the temperature in Tabernash will run anywhere from 10-15° colder than at my house so I don't doubt that temperature. I only ventured out of the house a couple times to take the dog out. It has been below zero at my house since 1:30 a.m. on the first and is currently -24.1°. I think Granby has been making ice and I really hope the slush is freezing.

The 400 feet higher would explain the warmer temperature as the coldest air
settles to the lowest areas. I did see a -44 reading for Fraiser on TV.
