|Foxhill Lake, January 24, 2013|
According to a spokesperson at that time, Maryland National Capital Park and Planning posted "No Skating" signs at Foxhill Lake and other area ponds until the ice was at least five inches thick, which allowed for four or five good skating days each winter.
Times have changed. No longer would the Washington Post refer to the area as "Bel Air," and "No Skating" signs are posted year round at FoxHill Lake. It's also rare for Foxhill Lake to freeze over for very long (this week being an exception).
This photo was taken two days ago after an overnight snow blanketed the lake.
