    Should I be concerned about what just happened?

    We've had like 2 days that hit around 50 degrees now, and one minute, everything looked good. A few minutes later, I glanced outside, and saw huge bulges in the cover (which I assume is ice moving). I went back on the cameras to see how quickly this happened. Looks like it took about 10 seconds or less.

    Don't mind the mess please, I have lots of work to do this spring.

    10 seconds later....:

    Here's a shot from ground level:

    Is this normal, as things warm up, to see the ice shift like that? For obvious reasons, I can't open the cover to check on things (yet).

    Think about the ice caps! You just had a "calving"! Kind of neat you saw it!

    Haha! The good news is that the ice is retreating finally, so it's about time to fire everything up and see if it really works. I took off a skimmer cover on Sunday, and the water in the skimmer was all still in its solid state. I'm guessing that the charcoal pool cover helps some with absorbing the sun and speeding things along, but we have at least another week of ice I would guess.
