I remember seeing this when I lived in Michigan for a few years as a kid. It was inevitable that every spring some idiot would test his luck and do this when the lakes were thawing. He would either lose his car/truck to the lake or have to have it rescued as it was floating away on a large broken away piece of ice. Stay safe, warm and have fun!
I am glad to hear that some can keep the faith and the camping nights going.....It's going to be a long break for winter up here in the "Great White North."
And before anyone points it out....I know that Minnesota is still further South for a lot of bloggers on this site>
