So the other day i get a call from one of my co-workers and she tells me that my canoe is almost in the water and with in the next few days it will be a float. I leave it at the lake at my summer job. Last time i was down there it was a least 15 to 20 feet from the water. With all the new snow melt and rain we have been having the lake is almost full. It was down about 9 feet at the end of summer. I t was freezing while i was down moving my canoe up to higher ground . Ice in the foot wells and about 10lbs heavier from just ice on it.
