I suppose this is signaling that it will be a while before you pull your boat back to its customary berth, Peter?
....peter:): i will leave it there until the end of May... i could put it in the water around the 15th Ray but it would just get banged around in the storms....petersmile
We have an insurance alert on the t.v. like this....It doesn't end well....
....peter:): the insurance co.'s up here will not pay for any vehicle that goes through the ice...
the same rule applies if they drive past a road closed barrier in a snowstorm...
you are at your own risk....petersmile
That should say advert! ***** predictive text!
....peter:): i no grin
Thick enough then!!
....peter:): still at least 2 feet thick Elizabeth....petersmile

C'est très beau et impressionnant.
....peter:): merci Martine... c'est un sport populaire en hiver pour faire sortir une cabane de pêche sur le lac... bise....peter/pierresmile
Did you go out for a drive?
....peter:): you would never catch me on a lake in a car or truck... you can hit patches of slush one and a half feet deep... and no tow trucks will help you out....petersmile

I get excited when our small pond ices over, Peter!
....peter:): i'm sure that you do Lisl... but it's too small for you to skate on itgrin....petersmile
Goodness, are those fishing huts?
....peter:): They are fishing huts and that is a truck parked beside one of them Martin... i would never drive a vehicle onto a lake even if the ice is over two feet thick....petersmile
That is thick!!
....peter:): it is as thick Bill... as the head of the guy who drove his truck out and parked beside the hut on the left....petersmile
Rather them than me Peter.
....peter:): they are well dressed for it Chad and they have a stove burning inside to warm up and eat and such....petersmile
No worries about the ice shack then.
....peter:): the shacks are pretty safe for now Mary... they have to be off of the lake by the 15th... that is when the pickerel season closes until May 24th for the spawning season....petersmile
Un camion sur ton lac, ça veut dire que c'est très très gelé. Allez, dans quelques jours ou semaines tout cela va fondre et tu vas pouvoir sortir le bateau. Bisous à  vous 3
....peter:): La glace doit être épaisse pour pouvoir conduire un camion sur elle Marie ... la glace ne sera pas hors du lac jusqu'à la première semaine de mai ... que je remettrai mon bateau dans l'eau!
Bisous de nous 3....smile
I see there is a icehouse out there...
....peter:): there are two fishing huts there Larry... and about another 120 or so spread all around the lake... but there are very few trucks out there like the one at the left hut....petersmile

Love the framing of the trees teasing us into the actions on the ice.
