This winter’s prolonged spring has caused cabin fever and surely made life difficult for some early bird migrants.
It’s also causing problems for marinas and other properties with docks on the river. Massive floes of ice are breaking up and floating downstream, smashing everything in their path.
KSTP reporter Ryan Raiche filed the below report last week about damage caused near Stillwater.
“The record cold that we are having is causing another problem,” said KSTP Chief Meteorologist Dave Dahl. “It’s causing some refreeze even out on the river. And that’s causing some problems where they had areas open up, they’re refreezing, creating huge sheets of ice.”
