Sinking ice shacks

Unfortunately for this unlucky fisherman, his shack found itself on ever-shrinking ice and was slowly sinking near the shoreline. As a dash of warm weather mixed with heavy rain recently, some small Maine lakes are showing dashes of open water, particularly in areas with thin ice – near springs, etc. On most lakes – conditions still remain solid and safe.
