Walking on water

A misty day, very mild for December. Minneapolis is preparing for ice-in at Lake Hiawatha (I'll give you this link, though it seems uber-outdated to speak of "improving" what used to be a "swamp." Is it naive to expect a park board to, you know, have more connection with/respect for nature? I am that naive.).

In case, on some chillier date, you are walking on lake ice and fall through, it's a comfort to know that an emergency rescue board is handy. One emergency rescue board—so don't all fall in at the same time.

Someone may be able to pull you out before you die of exposure...but if I were you, I'd stick to the shore for a good while yet.

If you're driving on lake ice—well, we won't say so, but you kind of deserve it. 

If you are a bird, however, even thin ice lacks a danger quotient. It actually gives you one more place to hang out with your friends, and make a big racket. So you have that going for you.

A crow walks on water, both in her own mind and in actuality. They are talented creatures! And they know it.
