Thin Ice Skating

When I was a kid I use to go and ice skate on rivers and ponds. Sometimes playing hockey with friends. I had always been really careful when I’d hear the cracking sounds, or see the darker spots in the ice. I’d heard stories of people falling through the ice before and would practice in my head thinking about how to get out and how much time before the hypothermia would take me. I never fell in the ice though, all that mental preparation for nothing.
