From a vet, no. Wait a few days until the weather warms up. The ice is has been iffy but this next cold front should lock things up. 

Im usually one of the first ones out on 2" of clear ice but with the iffy ice and snow I've yet to walk on water this year.

As far as the ice being safe, if you have to ask on the Internet, the answer is "no". I wish I'd had that much to lose when I was 15.

Ice will be fine. High of -3 with windchill of -30 though, have fun with that.

Stay home. You will freeze tomorow and if you have that much to loose and are relying on this site for accurate information on a non specific thread I would suggest not going anywhere you don't see people. Use your head and you will stay on top.

Everyone be safe out there. This snow really messed things up. I checked some small lakes around Rice Lake and one lake found 5" of good ice and probably 2" of snow and slush in one spot, moved 10 feet and it changed to 2" of ice. Another lake drilled one hole and only found 2" of ice with way too much snow and slush on top. Didn't feel comfortable on either so checking another one now.

unclewalter, I just keep my batteries in a small 6 pack cooler and they are fine. Under 10 degrees on a long day, you might want to add a hand warmer at some point
