    For the holiday, I took the dogs out to the Des Plaines Wildlife area. The road was closed off just after the I-55 exit. I parked the truck and walked the dogs in. Everything was flooded and there were big ice jams. It was pretty neat as I don't think I ever saw the ice sticking up like that. I guess it will be a bit before I can get the boat out considering it is suppose to be almost zero here soon

    I see where they have let the Dresden Power Plant start cycling hot water into the river for the next two+ weeks to help warm it up to get the ice moving, may get some fish interested in hitting also?
