lake ice ?

6 posts in this topic

Hey all, i have been out of the game foe a week and a half now due to getting a hernia patched up! i plan to go out and look around at the lakes today. Wondering how the lakes are holding up to this rain melt? Is it just getting rid of the snow or is the ice taking a beating?

Some of the lakes in the Brainerd area have no snow and standing water on them. I took a quick look on one of them and saw a perm house about flooded out. Around 3 inches of standing water on the ice and it was swirling into any open holes I saw.

I didn't hang around to do anymore than look. I would imagine the thickness is still ok but getting on and off some lakes could get dicey, as well as standing on them without cleats.

Definitely needed the cleats today but I was still down to the handle bars on the auger to get through.

Just got back from my ride to look at the lakes around me. Went out on tonka and snorkeld through the ice road! Is the water thats traped on the ice roads really bad for the road or will it be fine once things freeze up again? seams like the ice road is concaved from the weight of the water.

You should drill a hole off to the side of the road to let the water escape back into the lake and off of the top.

    • What specific things make him indecent or classless?    Did he grab women by the pu**y? Did he make fun of a disabled reporter? Did he call most Mexicans rapists? Did he make fun of John McCain because he was captured in Vietnam? Did he repeatedly claim that the POTUS was born in Kenya? Did he repeatedly claim that the POTUS was a Muslim? Did he say Megyn Kelly had "blood coming out of her wherever"? Did he say "Laziness is a trait in the blacks"?   I'd be interested to know what things Obama has done that are more indecent and classless than this.
    • Imagine an Obama who loved this country and had 8 years to show that.  The guy is smart, charismatic, and very likeable.  Instead we had 8 years of anti american ideology, lies, and race baiting. He chose that path, not me.
    • What reasons did you vote for Trump? Did it ever occur to you that those reasons may have been just things to get you to vote for him?
    • I know. I guess I forgot to put the  after my post.     Court decisions is what I was referring to because I also do not know of any laws officially separating church and state. There may be laws at the state or local level I don't know. The 1st amendment is not always interpreted by courts the same way. 
    • He has chosen to skip over decency and you earn respect, he is the one who had 8 years to show respect and class and failed.  He could have been the greatest president ever and unite this country but chose otherwise.  Even in his last days he is despicable.  That said i wont bow down to Trump and he needs to earn the respect obama has not.  Time will tell.
    • Anyone who thinks this country isn't heading to single payer, government funded healthcare is fooling themselves. I'm not in favor of it but we may as well just do it and get it over with now.
    • But will you recognize it? Just like I am sure that President Obama has signed legislation and done other things that YOU think are "good things"  for America that Sledneck doesn't recognize.
    • I give up.  Because it gets people to vote for them?    
    • Why would they worry about the debt, we can just print money????
    • It is a special accommodation for a particular religion.     No law states that that I am aware of.  Perhaps you have more information.  Just some court decisions which while they may be binding are not laws.
