Beware of Thin Ice


We are still a few days away from Thanksgiving – but there are already warnings being issued about thin ice forming around the area. There haven’t been any major incidents, but some people may be tempted to venture onto the ice. 

Right now, ice in some areas is about an inch thick – but you can still see a lot of open water. At least 4 inches is needed to hold an average person, 5 to 6 inches for an ATV or snowmobile, and 8 to 12 inches to hold a car or small truck. 

It’s also recommended to bring small ice picks and a whistle in the case that you may fall through the ice and be unable to yell for help.
