Yup. It's still cold outside.
But we're not Portland. It was nice of them to absorb the blow for us. And California doesn't appear to be doing so well either.
Keep your kids off the ice. Just because a pond is frozen over doesn't mean the ice is strong enough to support weight. Emergency responders in Snohomish county had to fish a couple of kids out of Lake Serene after they fell through the ice.
One cold year, I watched a father and his two young sons walking on the ice at Echo Lake. Everyone in my building was yelling at him to get the kids off the ice and he was saying, "oh, they're ok." Fortunately, he was right, but not because he knew what he was doing!
