Aa-broeken Ice--Too Thin for Skating

Wednesday, 1-February-2012 - Veghel - The ice at the Aa-broeken was too thin for skating today. It was only 3 cm at the edges this morning. I returned at noon with my skates and tried skating, but the ice would crack for about 10 meters in front and in back of me with each stride. The sun had weakened the ice a bit. Last year, I took a chance skating on thin ice; but this year it'll be cold for the coming week--no need to take chances. I'll be back tomorrow morning with my skates. Here is the current ice thickness forecast. pics (38)
