thin ice

Be careful out there. The ice is very thin and very deceiving. Our cat, Oliver, had a wet tail and a sad tale. But children and pets should be monitored carefully. He seemed to slow down at the edge of the water, shaking the moisture off of his paws, but the water is well over his head there! The duck eyed him warily, but still seemed to chuckle as he trod across the ice.

Around here, we have to watch ponds that have iced over that livestock or horses don't try to go out on them, requiring a rescue when they break through.

I used to love it, though, when the lake froze over enough that we could snowmobile across it.

I agree! But it needs to be a bit thicker to handle the 400 lb. machines!

I like to snowshoe across the lake!
