People In Latvia Invented The Best Use Ever For A Frozen Lake

Aug 14, 2015 By Madeleine Brown
Every year, as winter rolls around, we all start thinking of ways to make the frozen months exciting. It's tempting to stay inside, wrapped in blankets and watching movies, but that doesn't mean it's always the right way to go. It's important to go outside and try new things, like this, for example: creating a massive carousel out of a frozen lake.

A group of people in Latvia had the genius idea to break out some chainsaws and cut a huge circle of ice free from the surrounding lake. Then, they cut a hole for a boat motor and popped that in. It propelled the ice in a nice, slow-moving circle for quite possibly the most whimsical winter experience. If this looks like something worth trying to you, please keep this in mind: it's crucial that you make sure that the ice is thick enough for such a project, and that you're careful to test its weight-bearing quality before going too far.
