Watching ice levels on lakes


ALBERT LEA, Minn. — Even with the subzero temperatures we’ve encountered thus far this winter, that doesn’t mean the ice will cooperate on area lakes.
Such was the case yesterday, as four people escaped without injury after their pickup went through the ice on a lake in Anoka County.
It serves as a subtle reminder to those out on area lakes, no matter how cold the weather maybe, those ice conditions are always changing.
“Ice conditions change throughout the whole season,” Captain Lee DeVries of the Albert Lea Fire Department said. “You never know for sure what is going on under there. So, you got to be aware of that all the time. And now with spring approaching, there will be even more changes.”
He adds there is a lot of thick ice out on the lakes.
But, the ice conditions are still changing, even with the cold weather.
