Before the ice houses dissappeared- Deadlines, deadlines

Purple no picnic
A purple sky, A single contrail says goodbye to the village on the lake.
A lone picnic table at a cold beach in Deephaven.
From the DNR:
"The fish house/shelter removal deadline for the southern part of the state is March 2, rather than March 1 as originally printed in the 2008 Fishing Regulations handbook. The deadline for shelter removal in the northern part of the state, March 16, remains the same. Shelters must be removed from the ice by these dates"

About deadelines: Online Etymology:
"time limit," 1920, Amer.Eng. newspaper jargon. Perhaps influenced by earlier use (1864) to mean the "do-not-cross" line in Civil War prisons:
"Seventeen feet from the inner stockade was the 'dead-line,' over which no man could pass and live." [Lossing, 1868]
