We caught a rare time on our ponds this January. A weekend of just thick enough ice to skate on and perfect ice conditions. A few people came on Friday afternoon to scope it out. I drilled a few holes on Saturday morning and measured around 3" Later in the day a family was out skating on the small side and a guy was on a board with skate blades attached to a windsurfing sail. Windskater? Anyway I had to get out and take a few pics and videos. The next morning I was out with Bert trying to catch a great sunrise. Monday it rained all day and then Tuesday it snowed so perfect, safe ice is fleeting.
