Just got back from a trip to the cabin. Flew out and rode up on snow machines. It has been extremely warm up there and a good bit of snow is gone/settled. Still no dang hole open in the ice. Had enough wind up there to blow over some trees roots and all. I know those could be one time big gusts, but overall we have a lot of wind up there. I am pretty disappointed the windmill hasn't been able to keep a hole open. At this point, I have no way to know or test if this unit has failed again or not. I will be installing an American Eagle this summer for some redundancy. Will also be a nice test to see how the American Eagle unit performs since it doesn't seem like you can find anyone that runs one.
