A Warm Afternoon on Great Slave Lake

On a very gorgeous Sunday afternoon we ventured out on snowmobile around Yellowknife. About half way between Yellowknife and Dettah we stopped and took a break to take in the view. It was peaceful and quiet. We thought about months earlier when we were able to get in our boat for the first time on Great Slave Lake before all the ice was gone. It was about the same spot we were stopped today where the ice started. While standing out on the ice with no gloves on recording this video, I thought how bizarre it was that it was warm enough to do so in the middle of January. I can remember when this was the time of year when Yellowknife had weeks of -40. Are those times over?

Did you get out this unbelievable warm weekend?
