Used to be we could put our POS cars out onto the ice and take bets on when it would crash through the ice in the Spring. Something about gas, oil, tranny fluid, and antifreeze in the water put an end to that family fun pastime.
Last year with it being 78 on St. Patties we had a record year for ICE OUT. This year?????
Had a buddy tell me MAY 11 is what projections are saying – but Minnesota has yet to commit. Which is a big deal if there are still icebergs floating for the Walleye Opener.
