Erie doesn't have an inch of ice on shore. But it sure is cold. The lakeshore trees are all covered in ice cycles from splashing waves yesterday. I haven't stuck my nose outside once today. and don't plan on it. The garbage pail and blue boxes will still be there tomorrow, or the day after. As soon as I think about going outside I just remember those frozen body parts working on the docks in February and turn up the heat.

You are insane. -10C outside and 70F inside my shack and my fingers are freezing looking out the patio door just looking at the ice cycles hanging from tree branches.

There's a pretty long crack from BBP all the way up the N/W shoreline,  and looks like a bunch of smaller ones E/W direction.   Unfortunately looks like temps are rebounding.

The snow is not helping.   It might get slushy.   Another year of crappy ice.

Pretty sure he's on Prosperous L. 

 

And that crack off BBP must be about 100m wide in that pic.  At least most of the snow has blown off kemp already.

Apparently the bear point boys are out catching whities walking.

Really eh.  As in this morning?  Or on the weekend.  It would have been insanely sketchy out that way on the weekend with that raging wind and 2" of ice..

 

Im pretty stoked for this weekend.  Going out for sure both days.  Then thursday and friday next week.  Quit my job, now I have a few days off to ice fish!!!

Not yet.

Boat fixing used my time allotted to hovercraft fixing.

Plan to do it this spring if all goes well.

Yep, it's connected to the Yellowknife River in the Southwest end.

The river is navigable all the way to Yellowknife with a good jet boat.

Watched  a couple of boats with big inboard jets run up the rapids.

Pretty impressive to watch.
