    I think he must be crazy to attempt this even with specially designed wet suits but this gives you an idea of what our wild weather was like for the storms last week and the week before. nothing was frozen before the storm came through so the meant the water was still "warm". shoveling snow was the worst time ever this year. there was an inch of slush under the snow and as soon as I shoveled one pass the ground instantly froze and the slush stuck to the shovel blade.

    they must be crazy to go out on the water to surf in this. but my oh my, it truly shows how wildly cold our weather was. IF.. and thats a big IF the lake ever freezes over we wouln't have as much snow, but this year doesn't seem like thats going to happen. it has just been too warm too long to freeze over. twice in the last week we have been close or maybe even over 60f.
