And here's the lake at last. Yep, that's a lake. A real Finger Lake. In fact, it's Canandaigua Lake. You can see the snow-covered boats and the boat docks and those little dots in the middle of the lake are ice fishermen, though their accommodation isn't as luxurious as some, which have heating, tvs, the works, all built around the fishing hole.
Apparently someone recently measured the ice in another Finger Lake, Keuka Lake and found it to be four feet thick.. You really could drive a tank over it. (But I'm still not sure if I trust the neighbour's pond )
