Just had a pair of Bald Eagles land on the ice about 500 feet offshore of the house.

Gotta get a better camera!

Ice? It just dropped to 36 degrees at 12:30 AM, but it's going to keep dropping. It rained a little bit but will start snowing soon. There's a winter weather advisory and they're saying 5-8" by 3:00 PM. And 25-30 MPH gusts. Time to get out the shovel for the first time of the season. >:( I've very rarely seen eagles, and nowhere near here. I saw one 105 miles away hovering around St. Helen where Charlton Heston spent 10 years as a child.

Yes!  Ice!  A friend from SW Minnesota, our old home, just sent a photo of ice fishing on Saturday afternoon.  Not enough to drive on or even put a shelter on, but good for walking.

This winter storm wasn't half as bad as I expected. I cleaned a few inches of snow off of my truck and trailer a while ago. The snow in my driveway was slushy on the bottom and the sidewalk barely had any snow on it by the time the sun quit shining, but it was icy. If anyone wants to go ice fishing they need to wait, then head farther north.

P.S. There's something wrong with me. Yesterday and again today, when I saw the title of the thread I heard the song ďAmerica, F*** YeahĒ from the movie Team America: World Police inside my head.

I haven't seen ice or eagles lately so both were a surprise to me. And I've never seen a breeding pair of bald eagles, on ice or elsewhere. Having them right there is amazing.

Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!"
óPatrick Henry

"Good intentions will always be pleaded for every assumption of authority. It is hardly too strong to say that the Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters."
ó Daniel Webster

Nice.  We have a couple fly around here in the spring.  They are a joy to watch.
