Re: Repairing leak under the ice, now frozen on top

If you could post pictures that would be helpful---just to see what you are dealing with. I think water (from a hose, cold will work just as well as warm) should melt a hole through the ice near where the tear is and then you should hopefully be able to seal it with tape---do you have the good tape?...

Re: Weather forecast, when to flood?

Wow...those are some pretty big swings....Unfortunately......I would have to say wait....just not sure you build up a big enough layer of ice to get out onto it to shovel if god forbid it snows....

Re: Profile pics?

Curious if anyone else has figured out a way to post an avatar pic for their profile? Was looking to do this, but cannot find a way to get a picture under 6 KB. Anyone else able to find a way? Any way to maybe up that 6KB to like 60 or 100KB (which is still really small with modern internet speeds)....

Just Updated...

Thanksgiving in the US is usually the 3rd weekend in November....Lots of folks use Thanksgiving weekend as the "Setup weekend". Turkey on Thursday, Setup on Friday!

Re: Still skating?

Had our first skate on Thanksgiving night (November 28) and our last skate on St. Patrick's Day...Not sure we can ask for much more here in Chicago!
