so i was out today moving some snow and brush out of the way for a snowmobile path onto the lake adjacent to my property today and due to the unseasonably warm weather; the surface I was on was not it's normal solid ice ontop of about 4 feet of frozen mud and water. Instead it was about three inches of ice on top of a mud and water mess. I found out by accident today. Rat's, I forgot to take pics of my machine in the hole, but i did get some pics of the machine after I got it out with the help from the neighbors and a tractor. I'll have to get some pics of the hole and post it all tomorrow. nothing spectacular, just the most eventful day I've had in a few weeks.
