protective "huts" on top...? When this breaks up, doesn't it have
the very same potential of screwing up the oxygen content within
the lake..? I don't understand the scientific facts which say that
snow and ice lower or raise the oxygen content. Isn't ice still
1 hydrogen molecule and 2 oxygen molecules, just like water? 
So is steam out of the kettle... It's all the identical compound
