It was seven degrees above zero last Saturday morning at 6:30AM.

Last year no one went ice fishing at Shakamak as there was not enough ice. This year the late January cold snap had made about two inches of ice, plenty enough to support a few eager fishermen.

At 7:05AM a hint of sunrise showed itself as a deep burgundy glow, just beyond the eastern horizon. By 8:05 I was to Anderson, Indiana. I pulled off for an Egg McMuffin and watched the sun come up. I took I-70 west out of Indianapolis...
