Stay safe on the ice

Living on the waterfront is great year-round! Ice skating, ice hockey, and ice fishing are just a few of the activities frozen lakes offer. Keeping safety in mind, however, is extremely important at all times. Remember, "If you see ice that is sticking up, usually that means that it’s frozen and then it thawed and was frozen again; anything that just doesn’t look smooth like an ice skating rink that’s usually the worst to be on." Also, for your safety and theirs, keep your pets away from the ice. Many instances of people falling through the ice happen when a pet slips in. Stay safe and have fun this winter!
