When it’s cold in Minnesota, you don’t let the weather stop you from having a fun time! You take advantage of the weather and make accommodations to enjoy what you can. The Beardsley Fire Department did just that last weekend with an Ice Bowling Tournament on Dry Lake in Beardsley. I have lived in this area most of my life and I didn’t even know that there was a lake in Beardsley. Dry Lake is located just north of Beardsley’s Main Street and it was a fun day to be on the ice. The Beardsley Firemen were prepared to help us all deal with the cold by providing warming houses, warming fires and some warm beverages to help deal with the below zero temps. Luckily the wind was not blowing so it didn’t seem as cold as it may have been.
