Minnesota...Stay off the ice!

North Branch, Minnesota...stay off the ice with your c ars and trucks.

If you have a fish house on the lake, get it off.

Warm temps and rain has and will continue to make the ice  even softer.

The twin cities and south are seen many cars  and trucks go through the ice.

It is just two warm to risk going out.

If it were me I would be walking and wearing a life jacket!

We're in the same boat. It's been ice and snow for two months solid and now we're flooding from all the melt. It's never boring around here!

Good morning William. Many are asking even after a few cold days, "What Winter?"! Enjoy your day!

Good morning William. I can't remember when we have had such a warm winter.  I'm not complaining.

Even in some of the lakes north of the twin cities driving a large car or truck on the ice is not a good idea,

Good afternoon William. On Friday night in Massachuseets I turned into my driveway really slowly and wound up in the tress below. Can't be too careful.

It is definitely a different world that you live in my friend, I have never worried about driving on ice, haha.

That is great advice. I see us having an early spring all over the country.

Such a weird hard winter this has been in many areas across the country.  We have a dire situation going on with Oroville Dam about 100 miles north of Sacramento.  The auxiliary spillway is failing.  The city of Oroville is evacuating.

So which one is it Bill, early warming and melting lakes or Record cold.
