A popular wintertime sport is ice-fishing. On the most blustery, coldest days, you'll find die-hard fishermen out in the middle of the lake waiting patiently for a bite. Every time I ride by though, I suffer from a bit of anxiety. Even though the ice is "probably" solid and monitored by the DNR, I still have this fear that I will witness my worst phobia.
Yesterday, we took the girls to a spot on the lake where people ice-skate and on our way, we passed emergency crews parked at the lake and people with emergency equipment on the lake. My anxiety level rose about 100% however, Matt assured me that it was just a training exercise so, I made him turn the car around. Sure enough, that's all it was...thank the dear Lord.
Here are a few pictures of their "training" in progress. I wasn't able to speak to anyone about their training exercises but they were nice enough to let us stay and take pictures.
