The Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office is warning everyone to be cautious if they plan to go out on the ice. Thanks to our warmer weather, ice on a number of lakes has thinned considerably.
With temperatures below zero, it was hard to find anyone out on the ice on Lake Minnetonka. Brent Grewe is a Conservation officer with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.
With this weekend’s mini warm up, officials want to warn everyone to be careful on area lakes. Freezing and thawing are making ice conditions unsafe.
Even though last weekend turned winter on like a light switch, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is warning Minnesotans that the ice is still not yet safe for most outdoor activities.
