Default Re: Snow wasn't in today's forecast .....

Hey! We are up to whole whopping 30 degrees! It's a freakin heat wave. People are already driving smaller stuff on the lake. Things like Trackers, small cars, etc. At the rate we are going we should be able to drive anything by Christmas. There's 12" of ice on some of the lake. Would have already been able to drive anywhere with anything but we had a bad wind storm when the ice was about 6" thick that busted the whole lake up. That happens a lot of years up here. I saw it send the whole ice sheet 400 yards North one time when the ice was a good 7" thick. A lot of the ice houses were on the wrong side of the split and they had to get small boats and rescue a lot of people. At least the ice didn't turn into little chunks on that one. I'd have loved to have seen what the ice did at the North end of the lake. Garden Island must have taken a severe beating.
