The good news is that the ice is likely pretty thick in spots. The bad news is that the ice has a few inches of snow cover and also probably has some holes in spots.

This blog weighs in on topics such as long-distance skating, the Illinois canals, cycling, and a variety of related (and occasionally not-so-related) topics. I'd like to correspond with others interested in skating the Hennepin and I&M canals.
