Ice, ice, baby

In the old days, the shallow lakes around here froze around Thanksgiving -- you could play a little pond hockey before having turkey. The average freeze date of Lake Wingra, in the city of Madison, for example, was November 27. The typical freeze dates have really skewed pretty dramatically in recent years, though, so it's a pleasure to seee the first ice fishers of the season this morning.
