Like chopping a hole in the middle of the river to check and see how thick the ice is. It's what happens when you have too much time on your hands. Now we could take a cordless drill with a super long spade bit on there and drill down..but what fun is that, especially when you could take an axe and chop your way thru and get super wet/frozen in the process.

Another project on the to do list is to take down an old oak tree that snapped off in a wind storm last summer. The top fell down into the river and the only way I can effectively remove same is to wait till freeze up when I can get my chain saw and tractor down on the ice and remove same.
|Another job on the chopping block.|
There is another oak tree next to the downed one that is also listing heavily toward the water. I am giving it another 2 or 3 years and I will be taking that one down as well.
