A Hot Time On The Lake

A Chill Wind Does Not Blow

Lake Minnetonka Businesses dependent on ice fishing, people sporting on the Lake, and of course snowmobiling are feeling a real crunch. Not only is there very little snow (Lord knows we have had years of little snow) - now we have day after day of January temperatures in the mid forties. Frosty has vanished for cooler climes.
It is warm enough not only to ward off motor vehicles from the unsound
surface, but even the usual walkers and skiers have left the Lake a desolate void.
I used to go for a run on the lake, winding my way among the little ice villages and imagining that I was on an Alaskan ice flow.
Maybe in February.
