Brutal Cold

With wind chills of -30F people are wisely staying off Oneida Lake today.  Not much snow yet but we are expected to get 5-10″ by the time this event wraps up.  Most of the old-timers I’ve talked to are waiting until Monday to try to get back out.  We will…

Excitement and Spuds

OK, the obligatory early season warnings about using your spuds people, bring a buddy, know where your going, etc. With another cold night last night everybody seems to have plans to hit Oneida Lake tomorrow or Sunday. While the continued cold is making a nice base we are not all…
