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?
