Taking lake icing into own hands! #ThrowbackThursday
If the weather keeps up, we may need to resort to these icing methods to open up our lakes this season!
Grandpa, Oscar Eliason, owned and operated an icing business that cut ice from several area lakes and delivered to over 60 locations across the Northwoods! They would cut the ice in 16" cakes, store the ice blocks in sheds at various resorts and business locations in the area. Sawdust was used to cover the ice cakes as insulation to maintain the ice well into the summer season. #tbt
