The lake had been frozen over for about four days, so yesterday the kids and I did a little exploring along the shoreline. We walked along the ice and all my axe tests showed 6-8 inches of ice. Still, we stayed close enough to shore that we knew we could touch if we went through. Just before supper Zach spotted three wolves out on the ice! It was quite exciting to watch them.
The wind howled through the night and all that ice was broken up and mostly blown somewhere else by this morning.
