The Canadians are a bit more conservative, calling the ice "thin ice," which means from 2" to 6" thick.

Reminds me of 2013/2014. We're talking some serious ice.

I think it was 2013 when RH was still iced over well into May. My son and I had taken the first public Ranger trip of the season the year before and they were still breaking ice on that date the following year.

Think this year will be the same.

It sure looks like you're going to be right.
