This picture was emailed to me by Al Nelson from Manitoba. I understand it was taken by him.
A lovely clear shot of Scotty Island, with Middle Island and Hay Island behind it. One of my ice-fishing friends told me a few days ago that he was still drilling through two and a half to three feet of ice, but he didn’t say where.
On the bright side, we made it through our cold snap and warmer weather is on the way. Snow cover is markedly patchy, so bring on the sunshine.
