Thanks to Louisville’s Fred Alan who submitted the photo above of McNeely Lake. Clearly visible in the middle portion of the photo is a gaping space in the ice. If someone were to tempt fate and try and walk on the ice, that’s an indicator of the lack of thickness and they surely would be in trouble.
As long as man has walked the earth, we’ve tried to climb the highest mountains, swim across the widest rivers, explore the depths of the deepest caverns and crevasses. Some would say that being a daredevil is part of our nature.
However, walking out on ice in our parks isn’t permitted. So, just don’t do it. You don’t really know how thick the ice might be, and there’s a chance no one will be there to rescue you if you fall through. And hypothermia isn’t a pleasant way to go.
Thus concludes todays public service announcement, courtesy of Common Ground.
