This was from Saturday here in Michigan. Pretty scary site of a moron in his natural state, assisted by large consumption of alcohol. He was arrested at the hospital once he was checked out for being under the influence. Insurance doesn't cover once you drive out on the ice, EPA fines are substantial and the recovery fees are monumental. Speculation put estimates around 80-100k this genius is facing including all the fees and fines for being under the influence. They removed the truck on Sunday, it was in 12' waters, 850' off the shore.

I learned an interesting thing about water during a lunch conversation a couple weeks ago. Maybe I'm the only one who hasn't heard it; wouldn't be the first time... We all know that water becomes less dense when it freezes, right? Because ice floats on water. But I didn't realize that this "expansion" starts while it's still liquid: as it goes from 32 deg to 39 deg, water becomes more dense, then as it's temperature increases from 39 deg to boiling, it becomes less dense. What this means is that cold water sinks to the bottom of a lake (as we've all felt when swimming), but as it approaches freezing, it rises again to the top, where it freezes. If this "inversion" didn't happen, then a lake would freeze from the bottom, and would become a solid block of ice.


Jeff,
That is not exactly what happens. The lake will continuously cycle from top to bottom as the temperatures at the surface drop and the bottom of the lake maintains a warmer temperature, heating the bottom water. When the temp gets cold enough, the surface will freeze before it can sink to the bottom and is now in the solid state that floats. It is a constant battle of the top surface cooling and freezing ice as the bottom continues to warm, but cannot keep up with the top temperatures that continue to freeze. Snow on the ice will slow the building of the ice as it works as an excellent insulator. Ice fisherman hate to see an early buildup of snow on new ice, we would much rather have a few really cold days and nights without the precipitation to interfere with the build up.

As for the shovel, whjo knows what he was doing. May have been a walking stick, he didn't have a spud bar and was going to chip a hole with a spade shovel. This would NOT be my choice of tool for this, but can work. It is pretty amazing how clear the water gets once it has frozen, the waves, winds and boats stop stirring up the water and everything has cycled to the bottom. Get into a shanty with some shade, drill a hole and sit back and watch the action. A good friend said it best, it is TV fishing. You watch down your hole as the wildlife moves along below you, just like you are looking at an aquarium. Would rather ice fish any day over traditional fishing... it is a blast!

Dave, I took a vacation on Lake Charlevoix last summer, it is beautiful. There was a boat house for sale near the marina, 4.2 million :ohmy:
