    sighs, this is really, really, so sad that a family is suffering because of this kind of death on Roblin Lake at this time. Ice > the deceiver.

    The ice is NOT FROZEN thick enough. It is surface ice with the edges still water, when the sun shines. The lake is fickle > with warm spots due to lake-bottom springs giving soft fragile ice only mm thick in some areas, very changeable with the weather. It is tenuous, even with temps well below zero at the best of times. I’d trust 6″ of ice and then some areas would still be less than 4″.

    Condolences to the family and friends

    Please pass the word, ICE IS NOT FROZEN.
