I heard from local sources that it's going to be closed the rest of the year! Only a minor inconvenience, eh.

I drove over the bridge this afternoon and they were rolling the sediment barrier on the west side of the bridge up onto a boat, only to drive over again a couple hours later and it had been put it out on the East side. I'm tempted to try to jump it, like the Duke Boys.....YEEEHAWWW!!

I heard that it wasn't supposed to open for a week or two, but there was a boat jumping the floats and yelling so loudly, they opened it a few days early. smile.gif

The silt fences were open yesterday...Took the family out for a little boat ride and went under the bridge for the first time.

Hey Stick, have you seen the pretty art work on the new bridge. They appear to be a series of symbols of some kind. Maybe MNDOT marks there 'turf' with graffitti? Nothing highlights the beauty of cultured stone like blue spraypaint.

No I hadn't...that's terrible. Everything from the top side looks so nice, and I haven't been by the causeway by boat lately to see how nice it looks from the water. Day by day, I get depressed more and more by what people are capable of. Hopefully it'll get covered up and look good.

      I was up there about ten days ago and the snow and lake ice were melting fast.
      The forecast for the next week looks good for making ice.

      Dean iced over today.  Schmidt has ice about 30 yards out then open water. Been a few years now, Pelican may be snappin' again.

      This year started out like last year but starting tonight the temps are nothing like last year. There will probably be vehicles by the 26th. I'm still feeling good about sleds on the 17th.

      Last year it was Dec. 26th before they opened the road up out of Morris pt. for 4 wheelers. Thinking its looking like that again this year. Hope I can hold out. Between the ice show and this website getting very fired up.
