A local driver thought the ice was thick enough on Sylvan Lake Nov. 29 to support his Toyota, however to be safe he stayed close to shore. That was a good thing because he went through the ice, but only into two and a half feet of water just off shore from Sunbreaker Cove at the north end of the lake.
The vehicle was removed by Richlen Towing after a three hour struggle.
Since then we’ve had several weeks of cold weather and the village of fishing huts off Norglenwold has grown. The parking area and skating rink beside the pier are now operational.
