The naturally-occurring ice disk in Westbrook, Maine is still going strong, spinning every minute of the day even after our first big storm of 2019. Now, you can keep track of it every moment of the day.
I went ice fishing yesterday with family and friends, including my 9-year-old son who would fish all day if I let him. It got me wondering as we walked out on Keoka Lake in Waterford, just how thick does ice have to be to be safe? I found the answer.
Who knew you could take your boat out on the lake even when it is frozen? Although, I don't think I would recommend towing the kids behind this contraption. With a small fishing boat, some metal pipes, a motor, and a saw blade, you have yourself an ice cruising machine!
It's been a record breaking year for temperatures in Maine so I can assume the water in Moosehead Lake is a little chilly this time of year. Watch as 2 state police divers return to the surface of the lake in Greenville.
It seems more and more police departments have taken to social media to ask for the public's help in solving crimes, showing how they're working in your community, and to show the human side of police work, as we've seen in the Bangor Police Department's many amusing posts!
