There's still ice up north!

By Bill Bartusek, Jr., Outdoors Columnist

After a big snow storm up north last week, the southern part of the state held its breath waiting for a big storm too. Lucky for us it didn't get here.

Now it looks like we're headed for warmer weather. The lakes in this half of the state are open but those north of the cities are not. I thought we would have an early ice out up north. Now I'm not so sure. The snow cover and cooler weather really shot down the thaw.

At the cabin last week you easily could have used a Snowmobile to drive around.
