    We are driving in a blizzard. This is no small snowstorm. It is a full scale blizzard and snow is piling up on the road. My vehicle, with the boat behind it, slips and slides on the snow covered roads. Both hands grip the steering wheel and I am intently starring out across the front of my vehicle, snow reducing visibility, slushing up the windshie...

    This may be payback for what Mother Nature threw at us last year, but whatever it is we will gladly take it! Thanks Ma! Ice conditions through out the Northwoods have gradually improved. A recent snow from last night (12/21) will stall ice production at these current temps but provide some traction when out on the ice. Ice not too thick (6-9+&rdqu...

    Following days of mid 40’s and wind, last night things laid down enough for many area lakes to skim back over!  A few bays and shallow lakes have 1 ½ - 2 ½” as of 11/30.  Should be expanding now, but not quickly. Night time, early morning and late afternoon temps look to be running high teens to upper twenties, ...
