Entirely too much up here on Lake Simcoe.  Had to pull a Colin Kapernick and take a knee to finish the hole today with the manual auger.

A few days ago, Western Maryland anywhere from 6-12" with about the top third white ice, as you head East/South mostly open water or unsafe ice.  We had rain and a couple days of warm weather recently, so things could be worse.  We need some cold nights to lock everything back up hopefully by the weekend.

That's a #6 for north central to north east Wyoming. Approximately 17"+ of snow capped ice and still building.

25"+ around Minneapolis. Saw a video report from up on lake of the woods of some spots needing multiple extensions where ice sheets stacked up.

My Shark z51's powerhead was extremely close to the ice, prior to punching through on Lake Minnetonka last Saturday.

My k-drill won’t reach anymore without the tip of the drill getting wet. My old jiffy mod 30 is out of retirement with a 6” extension maybe I should have bought the 12” extension. Minus -5*f here this morning making more ice.

What ice - going to have to check the lines holding NJ to NY - with the rain we have been having, I'm surprised NJ hasn't floated away into the sunrise
Now is the time for all good men and women to engage in the sport of ice fishing

The waters of Green Bay have 2 feet of ice, "BUT" with all the rain and warm weather the ice is getting soft. The bay has currents and eats away the ice from below. I ice fish often, but have put my equipment away for the season. No casualties yet, but a few have gone thru.
