Thin Ice

January 20, 2023

Do not go on iced-over water – especially in this warm and cold weather back-and-forth. Ice can be dangerously thin even if it appears to be thick and safe. Hike, snowshoe, sled and ski to your heart’s content, but do so safely: Stay on the trails, obey all posted signs and remember to contact 911 at the first sign of trouble.
