NOTHING TO STAND ON




Aerial views taken from the southwest corner of Higgins (above) and the southeast corner of Houghton Lakes show very little ice left as of Tuesday afternoon, when temperatures climbed into the 60’s under clear skies. Ice cover on all water bodies in Roscommon County was either on its way out or gone Tuesday, as open water fishermen began to take to area lakes and streams. Although there is little chance of the ice coming back before next winter, the National Weather Service prediction for the upcoming weekend does include the possibility of snow. For more aerial photos and photos of ice coming ashore, see the Resorter’s web site.
