safe ice

The cold has been here for awhile now. But is the ice safe yet? It depends on what lake and where you are on the lake. Here is a guide put out by Minn DNR:

Four inches clear ice for travel on foot

Five inches clear ice for snowmobiles and ATVs

Eight to 12 inches for cars or small trucks

Twelve to 15 inches for medium size trucks

And thats good, clear, solid ice.
