People are advised to be careful if going on the ice.

The recent arctic blast left the lakes ice covered...but temperatures

the past few days have been more spring like.

Just this past Saturday...the Indiana Department of Natural Resources

reports a 48 year old man on an all terrain vehicle fell through the ice and died in

downtown Putnam County.

Two weeks ago....a 45 year old man died after falling through ice in

DeKalb County.

Recently.,...shelf ice formed along the Lake Michigan shoreline.....and

people are urged to stay off that ice.....because of the air pockets in shelf ice

that make it prone to breaking.
