Opening Day May 11th,2013

Today another  record was set at Mille Lacs.  Ice on the main lake on opening day.  The other was I believe in 1950.  Right now the NW winds are blowing 25-40 mph and the ice coming our way.  I’m hoping and praying that it doesn’t take out our house on the lakeshore, as it is only 50 feet away.   We have big rocks in front and there is a reef a quarter mile out in front that hopefully will stop the most of it.  You will see some of it on our web cam.  It’s going to be a scary next few hours for us here.
