What kind of damage does everyone think the warm weather will do this week?

Make for slushy conditions where the snow is deep ,otherwise all will be fine .The ice won't melt from a few warm days.
There would be a shortage of tip-ups if people concentrated on the really important things in life .

It will melt the top slush/snow, hopefully it will freeze up enough at night to keep it from being a mess.

I went out today and it is not easy walking . Real soft snow with slush/water about 8 inches deep. What a nice day weather wise.

It was REAL slushy on the ice today, water in areas that were dry yesterday. Glad I have rear chains on the wheeler !  ;D

How easy was it for the wheeler to get around?


A bad day of fishing is better than a good day at work!!

I stayed in 4 wheel drive and wasn't beating the machine for the 3 miles I traveled on the ice ,just real sloppy/wet. The machine would bog down a bit in the deeper drifts/slop but never came close to being stuck at all.
