Ice?

Has anybody driven through Parkdale recently; last five days? I'm wondering how much ice is in the water. It's looking like a warm weekend....

Mike, are you thinking Saturday or Sunday. I may very well rally.

Dan!
It has to be Sunday for me. I have to work Saturday. It's been a month since I boated, so I'm pretty sure I will do this.

I had one friend tell me he drove through there... in the dark, but he said from what he could see, it didn't look icy.
I bet it's good to go.
So, Dan and Beth, it would be great to boat with you guys if you wanna do it. I'll bring the spud-boat and play til my brain freezes.

Anybody else?

Things looked clear last weekend from pinnicale down to parkdale as I drove to Monarch. There is some ice starting to form obstructions up river of pinnicale in the slack water. Give it a good look on your way to the put in and you should be ok.

Mike, if I get everything done that needs to be done on Saturday, then I'm in for Sunday. Might have to let you know last minute though.

Wow, forecast is up to 57 degrees for tomorrow.
I'm doing this solo if need-be. Somebody pick me up when I'm hitching back to my car, okay?

Was through there yesterday on the road. Lots of ice jams and areas where the whole river is under ice, but there were also a lot of stretches where there was an open channel....

Snow's too thin, might as well boat. What time?
