The National Weather Service in Gray remind us that the ice might not be safe to go on, even though it's January. They've posted a helpful, easy to understand chart that shows us how thick the ice should be to support our weight. In fact, they show us how thick it needs to be from walking on it, to driving a pickup truck on to it.
