    Great. If some “beautiful person,like Ted kennedy fell thru the ice, the Navy would be there with submarines combing the bottom of the entire lake day and night. Coarse, if he was involved, he would not be the one in the lake, it would be somebody else………..most likely , a woman.

    This happens every year, either wait until the weather is cold enough for the ice to get real thick or take the chance of falling in! I am praying that the lost snowmobilers are just lost and have found a way to survive until found!!

      Oh it’s cold enough but the snow acts as an insulator. Most ponds and lakes are safe if someone uses caution. if someone wants to go blasting their sled across a lake at night then that is another story. I pray for the families.

        Very true I have livestock and the water bowls are buried to their rim in snow. I only had to break a skim on the top this morning to reveal water underneath.

    For some reason you are not taking any consideration for the Wardens and 1st responders who risk their lives to recover those that made a poor choice by being on the lake in the first place. Rangeley Lake is big, but it’s not the ocean. thank you to all that are involved in this recovery effort!
