BRRRRR.....Let's face it, it's down-right cold.
We hit -6 last night, and saw ice skins form over about 50% of the reservoir. There is some pretty solid ice around the boat ramp, and the extended forecast calls for continued lows in the single-digits to low teens. We expect to be closing the ramp for the season in the coming days, as it appears the ice is here to stay for a while.
We will keep you posted as to the ice conditions, and please always use extreme caution when around new-formed ice. Never walk out on ice you don't know the depth of. Stay safe, and warm out there.
