We finally got done dealing with the hard freeze and frost that's been plaguing our area for the last couple weeks. Now that that's out of the way, a rain storm is approaching that should be hitting this area in less than a hour from now. So much for doing this weed control job I was headed to.

thats only about 100 deg warmer than it is here. the temp isn't as bad as the wind. 0 deg is cold but when the windchill drops it to -30deg that is no fun and the worst part is the wind shoved the ice on the lake and there might not be a spearing season (the only thing winter is good for imo). Check out these pics

Yeah its pretty crazy and doesnt happen this bad very often. The ice broke loose on the west shore and just pushed up the east shore. I guess there has been a decent amount of damage to lake properties. I plan to take a ride later this week and go check it out. It really sucks last year only about 50% of the spearers went out due to bad ice and this year was promising until this happened. Now there is open water all over. A snowmobiler, RIP, went down a few days ago and I fear there may be more if people arent more careful.
