last weekend they held a power ice auger contest at breezy point, top prize went to some big swede with a chainsaw-powered auger and jessica said it was quite a sight. there he stands, one hand on the running auger and the whistle blows. he pokes a throttle, then all you could see was watersouts getting thrown into the air, you hear 3 healthy burps from the motor and in like 8 1/2 seconds there he stood, soaking wet, and there were 3 new 10-inch holes thru 2 feet of lake ice!
ya know i was thinking, i could use another mile of fence in the spring, and surely he wouldn't charge much by the second! i could wave the flags - fella's gotta stay in practice ya know :)
