11/15/13. The ice is just beginning to form along the banks of the WI River, in zip 54501. This is a wide part of the waterway, and relatively shallow. The current is less than swift.
Northern Wisconsin, USA. Grrrr. The fishing opener is the first Sat. in May. We WILL be ice fishing, as reports say there’s still 2 ft. of ice on most lakes. We got 2″ of snow last night, and as pissed off as people are, it is actually quite stunning. I took a short walk with my camera, Boxer-dog in-tow, and snapped some detail shots. Hopefully this is winter’s last hurrah. We’ve all had enough.
