April 21, Bunny day

This afternoon our chain float for the dock, out 30 feet or so, popped, through the ice.  The actual margin hasn't really expanded but anything along the edge looks rotten.  Over in Jeffs bay we were checking on the station docks and adding an extra anchor.  While there, Derrick, always the scamp, decided to be the first in the water for the year!  Why he did this while fully clothed is beyond me.  Unfortunately, Detect-0-deer is hesitant to resume the ice out watch, however, Detect-0-tripod will take up the duty's.  There is a recovery float attached to it by the way.
