I always give my kids heck for thinking its cool to go out on the ice. Its not cool at all. We had colder winters when I grew up, and the lake at my
grandparents house would freeze, we were taught to never go on the ice unless the cracks were thick, 8 inches to more. Big cracks, thick ice, and

I only went on ice that was more than a foot deep.
But, nowadays, they're ice fishing near here, we have had 2 weeks, one in December and one in beginning Feb, that were unusually cold, ie. -16-18, but
only that temp for a day or two. -12, for a few days longer, when here it gets maybe -5-8 for January cold on normal years. But we spent most of the
winter hovering around zero, sometimes 12 above, 2 above, 4 above for weeks.
