it is very cold. my brother in law fell thru the ice on his snowmobile lastnight. he had my nephews girlfriend on the back of his sledand we went thru a channel that had hundreds of tracks on it and his back end fell thru the ice. the front end is still on the ice. but by the end of it with me on my new sled and nephew on my old sled we got them back to a heated beer tent. i fell in trying to get them out of the water and my feet were solid blocks of ice.i do have tosay people in wisconsin kick arse tho. people gave use stuff from dry clothes to some lady took off her socks for me and gave em to me. thing i dont get is that anywhere else on the lake is 22 plus inches of ice.well sorry for long post.
