    the lake in my local town froze and at lunch me and some of my mates, went and played ice hocky and football on it for a laugh. we were like skating on it, just with out flat soled shoes! we were halfway across for like the 5th time and it cracked, we saw the crack go straight past us and to the other side, it was scary so we legged it so fast, even on ice. great fun though, never eaten a subway sitting in the middle of a frozen lake. :lol:

    well we managed to get into a run - just! like in the ice age film where you see the crack, it was exactly like that and the noise was really wierd! it must have been 3 or 4 inches thick at least as we chucked a concrete paving slab at it corner first and it didnt even break through.

    I was on a job at the Alwen Reservoir Damn yesterday and that has completely frozen up and is really thick where some parts have been cracked. didnt walk on it though as its well deep and I was the only one there so no chance of a rescue!

    Not too bad here either! I haven't had to scrape my car for the last two days! Been a bit of ice on the pond though. I do have Madieran, Canary Island and other subtropicals here thought that survive outside, though I'm thinking this winter might finish them off!

    Being on the middle of a frozen lake, the further out you go the thinner the ice.
