Inlet’s Frozen Fire & Lights, ice fishing with Grandson Jake

Kites flying before the big Outhouse race

Another “January” thaw is upon us, with temperatures in the forties and maybe up in the sixties before weeks’ end. It is pretty hard to have winter events without snow and ice. Luckily, it held up through this weekend, so Inlet’s Frozen Fire and Lights got through all the events without a hitch. The cardboard sled races at Fern Park were fast for those who kept their cardboard crafts headed straight down the icy hill. Some went across the finish line in a little over six seconds and into the crowd watching at the tail end of the race. Some flipped before crossing the finish line, but dragged their sleds across the line for time.

Recent storm spurs memory of Chibougamau Lake fishing trip

We hit all kinds of weather and temperature changes going to Utica two times this week. Starting out in the dark on Friday, [Feb. 9] the temperature was near freezing with a misty rain that tried to freeze on the windshield, but as we went further south the skies nearly cleared and we even saw a sunrise in Utica. The clouds moved in during the day, but only a few short showers passed through and it was mostly clear on the way home.

Inlet’s Annual Frozen Fire & Lights slated for Feb. 25

The Town of Inlet is getting ready for the 21st annual Frozen Fire & Lights – a weekend of bonfires, fireworks, and family fun that will be held on Saturday, February 25, 2023. This event began as a way of reminding visitors and locals of what the town has to offer at Fern Park in the winter. Every winter, the pavilion is flooded and becomes an indoor skating rink with a warming room and heated restrooms. A small section at the base of the mountain was cleared many years ago leaving a nice little sledding hill, and several years ago the top was leveled off creating a nice, flat area to stage before sliding down.

Free Fishing Days this weekend, ice anglers enjoying atypical winter

Amaryllis

This week was a February thaw most of the time, with rain and wet snow. Then Friday night [Feb. 10] we did get two inches of nice snow to start the weekend…and Old Forge’s Winter Carnival. About the only time I got outside was to feed the birds and get the mail, as the ankle is still not up to par. The cold I had, I passed on to Karen and so far, we have both survived it. Got tested for Covid and strep throat, had neither…just a good, old fashioned cold. Alka-Seltzer, cough drops, and many naps for the cure.
