hazards after rain

We sailed Riley Saturday, with a very nice ice surface. But hazards do exist from the rain, with a couple of limited areas of thick shell ice. One area was wet shell, that DN's could sail over but a snowmobile broke through. The other two areas were about 3/4" thick and runners dropped through. No damage or injury, but be cautious on all area lakes. We will sail again Sunday.
