Well, I was curious and took the run up to Toby. There was some open water by the spillway and some more to the left. I walked out about 20ft and chopped a hole with the spud. Measured 2 1/2 inches, Walked out another 20 ft and chopped another hole and measured 2 1/2" again. It's not ready. With these temps it'll probably be ready next weekend but not this weekend. Be safe.

I took a ride yesterday morning.............................stopped at Promised Land Lower Lake- only 2". Then drove over to Tobyhanna. There was about 3" there, but I won't walk on less than 4" of ice, so I put my spud back in the car and left. There were a couple guys in trucks parked there just looking out on the lake when I got there. I figure they were waiting for somebody to walk out there before they went out on the ice. I wasn;t gonna be their crash test dummy!  ;)

Nope. But with these temps the next 3 days, I would be surprised if it wasn;t safe by the weekend!
