Ice not thick enough for annual event (again)

       For the sixth year in succession, the famous Eagles Mere Toboggan Slide here in PA is unable to function due to the lack of thickness of ice.

      This is a quarter mile toboggan slide downhill onto a lake that has been constructed by the fire company every year since 1904 for fund-raising purposes. They require that the ice thickness be a minimum of 12″  thick by February 1st. This year it was only 4.5″.
