    I suppose this is expected with highs in the 40s and 50s. There was pretty good ice over in the NE metro (even the St. Croix River) after that cold wave. Saw people out on the ice on Saturday and Monday morning, albeit smaller lakes …

    All the ice around here is black and I anticipate will likely clear off on larger ponds and lakes frown

    I said the same thing to my buddy. I bought a sled so we won’t get snow. I guess I wasn’t thinking we wouldn’t even get ice.

    I spoke with Jeff a couple of days ago and he’s in no hurry to get out on the ice. With age comes wisdom.

    That cold night really helped out. I think the lows in the teens will help a lot.
