2000 was a good year for ice boating on Lake Wingra
Haven't seen much this year. In 2000 they were out on the ice right after Thanksgiving. The lake froze early that year, creating these beautiful sheets of ice, and it didn't snow until later. This year the lake stayed ice-free all the way through November and didn't freeze over until the end of the first week of December. And then, before the ice had a chance to freeze to the point where it could support iceboats, we had heavy snows.
