Is the ice safe to play on?

The ice may not be safe.

Depending on how you get on the ice.

It is said that the ice is NEVER safe.

That the thickness can vary a lot.

Today, 2 vehicles, a car and a  4 wheeler fell through the ice.

Both on the same lake.

They fell through in the same area they had been driving on a few days  ago.

Ice fishing is the big draw, but still it is not always safe.

 

 

A nice Northern pike from a few years ago.

It tasted delicious

The storm has arrived and will be around for a couple of days. We will finally get a bit of snow. This is good as it will keep things from freezing. Snow is a great insulator. People may complain about it, but, we need this insulator. And some… more

Well, once again we see a government shut down. Many of the days no one would have worked anyway. But that is not the point. These people are supposed to look out for our best interests. I don't see that very often but I think it has to do with… more
