Mysterious Pond Designs In Friday Harbor

I live in the North 40 neighborhood of Friday Harbor. Over the past couple of days, there have been mysterious designs in the frost covering my pond.

I’m curious if anyone else has experienced this in their pond.

The designs have been there since Monday morning and haven’t changed at any time during the day. I have lived in my house for 18 years and this is the first time this has happened.

My friend, Susan Matthews lives on Cattle Point across the island from me and she had similar designs in her pond as well. 

Do you know how the designs were made?
