Thin Ice Can Be Dangerous

Recent cold weather has started the annual process of covering area ponds, lakes and rivers with a coating of ice. However, temperatures have not been very cold, nor have they stayed below freezing for prolonged periods. As a result, the ice may not yet be strong enough to support much weight

Be careful! Know the condition of the ice on area ponds, lakes, streams and rivers. For more information, check out these links to the North Dakota Game and Fish Department, as well as the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.

Be safe when enjoying the winter seasons sports!
