My cabin in trouble?

2 posts in this topic

I opened my cabin two weeks ago and did not leave the heat on. With this cold weather, should I drive 2 hrs there to turn the heat on? Or its already too late?

It was 12 degrees here the other morning in Glenwood and 24 degrees out right now (4:45 p.m.). Suppose to get down to 13 degrees the next 2 nights according to the weather channel with highs in the upper 20's and maybe reaching 30. If you left your water on and not the heat, I'd be making a quick trip to the cabin. The cost of time and gas is pretty minimal compared to tearing out all the plumbing and frozen water pipes. I assume that's what you're referring to in your post. We did get 5-6 inches of snow Monday night and Tuesday a.m. so there's some insulation on the ground and I think the first foot or better of frost is out. Your interior plumbing is probably okay. It's been below freezing here the past 3 days and with it suppose to get down to the low teens the next couple nights I think I'd be making a trip to your cabin. Better safe than sorry.

      I understand that the SonarChart data comes from user submitted data, but I wonder if that data is rife with errors.  Maybe the users set up their sonar wrong or something to contribute to the faulty data?  As your screen shots prove, they're highly inconsistent.  There is no 37 foot hole just south of the words Marion Lake nor along the western shorelines.  Based on my experience on the lake with my sonar in my boat, the Navionics data is more accurate than the Sonar Chart, so I'm not seeing the value in the $4.99 yearly subscription to the user submitted data. I guess I'll have to evaluate on a few different lakes and see, maybe it is just a problem with the data for Marion, I just expected that the user submitted data would be more accurate, not less accurate   On a side note, I noticed I could refresh my map update and that at least got rid of the data with the 51' depths, but it still looks like your screen shot on the right.  I'll keep checking for updates in hopes of better data come summer.

      I will be up there next week from Austin Texas.  Can anyone comment on the lake and how safe it is after the warm up?  I thought it would be very unsafe but I saw a truck on the ice plowing an ice rink this morning on one of the web cams.   Is there still plenty of ice and is the lake in pretty good shape now that is has turned cold again?  Maybe it is in better shape then before the cold?   I grew up in the area but that was 30 + years ago so any schooling on the ice would great.   Thanks for any comments.

      Was out there Tue.... Ice was getting soft on top. Access was in ok shape. Don't think you will be getting a wheelhouse out unless it's a real small light one.  Had 16-20 inches of ice yet
