Ice skating to school in northern Minnesota

I’ve already mentioned how unusual the weather conditions have been in northern Minnesota this winter, cold but no snow. The result has been some of the most amazing ice conditions on our lakes most have seen in many years. Thick, smooth, clear ice. Take a few minutes and enjoy this fine amateur film by a family in Bemidji depicting their recent ice skate commute to school. Very festive and soothing.

The “Between You and Me” topic on 91.7 KAXE this Saturday 10-noon is “Ice.” I’ll be on with a few thoughts about this unusual ice. It might seem like a small thing to some of you but this is becoming a big deal among the people who live here — if only because the same conditions that create this ice also freeze septic systems.
