Winter on the lake is a different experience then the sunny warm days of summer. There is still fun and adventure to be had. Just ask Henry:
He actually prefers the the subzero temperatures at the lake, for then that aqueous surface (he isn't a swimmer) magically forms into that solid state supporting his magnificent 160 pounds. If there is snow on top all the better...ice skating is not his favorite winter sport.
And then there are those who find other things to do when the lake turns to ice: how about some snowmobiling or maybe a little ice fishing?
What is your pleasure when the weather is so cold an entire lake becomes a frozen tundra?
