In our last blog (http://bearskin.wordpress.com/2008/11/18/watching-the-ice-form) we said, "Andy and Quinn are both predicting a totally frozen lake in the morning."
Obviously, as you can see from this photo, they were right about the ice.
Some people are in a big hurry for the winter fun to begin.
For the mothers who are getting heart palpitations just thinking about these guys skating on one day old ice, it helps to know that this area of ice started forming earlier and was already quite thick; they didn't actually venture out very far. You don't want to hear about the experiment with the canoe on fresh ice that occurred next.
