Temperatures are forecast to take a nosedive early next week, but it still could take some time before lakes and ponds will be frozen enough to support any kind of weight.
The Marysville Division of Police issued a release reminding kids and parents that being on any ice is dangerous, so they should stay off frozen ponds, lakes and other bodies of water.
The area does not normally experience temperatures low enough and for a long enough duration to have ice thick enough to support even a child. If someone were to break through the ice, they would have a short time before they succumbed to the cold.
The department said this is a good time for parents to talk with their kids and make sure they understand that the results of being out on thin ice could be deadly.
