Hey Ya-All!
Thought I'd send along a picture of a top notch dredge operation. Looks like a log caught in the auger? Starting to freeze into the ice. Where that unit is sitting, there is about 2 feet of water. That's why Izona is on a trailer and not in our local marina.

Welcome home Mr. Barry!
Yes, Boys & Girls, that's ice hanging off Lori's boat. 21 degrees today, but it's supposed to get really bad tonight. just had to go for one more boat ride.
