Icebreakers are escorting freighters, with temps heading to -10 F. Still two weeks before the shipping season officially ends.

Pics or it didn't happen.

Are you trying to lure Ishmael out of his hiding, he liked icebreakers, as I recall.

Looks like one of my uncles in Northern Ontario. Their idea of fun after moose hunting and snowmobiling is drinking beer and rum in the sauna at their cottage and jumping into a hole they have chopped in the ice on the lake and jumping in at 40 below and then back into the sauna. No wonder they are still active into their 80's.

I'v done the sauna and roll in the snow, it actually does feel good. Yesterdays polar plunge felt colder though without the sauna.
