Cool Ice Bound - what if?

What if you left your trawler #IceBound instead of hauling out for the off-season, with a couple of live webcams running 24/7.
This past winter, a friend of ours offered the use of his dock on the river downstream of Lock 32 of the Trent Severn Waterway, in Bobcaygeon Ontario CA.
We live on the river just upstream (but in the shallow area where the rapids are), so we could always get to the boat fast if we had to.
We also had cameras in bilges, high water alarms and other sensors communicating wirelessly with us over the Internet, and AIS reporting the position as "wintering ice-bound"..... love toys.......
We compiled a 10 minute time-laps video of what the foredeck cam "saw" as winter came and went, November 2017 through March 2018:
