April is just a few days away

As I write my column, a nice spring rain is falling. The pleasant weather in our area has continued and surprises even me. Some ice fishing in the area is still going on, however shorelines are getting bad real fast. It won't be long and people won't be able to get out on the ice.

In the northern half of the state there is still snow on the ground, especially in the wooded areas. Around Mille Lacs Lake and north of there people are still driving on the ice. The weather there this past weekend was much cooler than we have had.
