We've had a week of warm weather, 50s, 60s, even pushing 70. Usually at this time of year they are warning people they have to get their ice shanties off of Lake Superior by Mar. 31. Last week every time we went to town there were boats out in the bay with people fishing. Heard a rumor that there had been a couple of brave souls had ventured out on the ice in the bay and done some ice fishing. The fact that their big balls didn't cause them to break thru the ice amazes me!!
Update: just heard the forecast for today, high 76 to 81, cooler near the lake.
Addendum also: Today's high was 70 with 1 to 2ft of snow on the ground. UN-FUCKING-REAL!!
