Ice skaters and ice fishermen had a brief chance to get out on area lakes this week. But if you missed that window, you might be hanging your skates back up again for a while.

Temperatures dipped into the teens and single digits this past week or the first time this winter, and ARC Lake in Soldotna had a crowd of skaters Tuesday. But with the forecast calling for snow Wednesday, followed by warming and rain on Thanksgiving, don’t expect the ice to stay nice for long.

Leah Eskelin is a ranger with the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge. She recommends being cautious if you’re hoping to get out on a lake over the holiday weekend.

“That’s Daisy and Opie, Donnie, Holly, Macey and Lovey, in the kennel is Huckleberry…”

And that’s Abby Hall, president of the Kenai Peninsula Animal Lovers. Eight of the dogs listed are permanent residents. Oh, two cats, too.

“That’s Peaches. She was rescued from a party where they were writing on her with a Sharpie,” Hall said, referring to the creamy orange purr machine vying for attention with her eight canine siblings.

In her life beyond animal rescue, Hall owns a salon. She and one of her clients, Kelly Keating Griebel, have been talking for years about wanting to start an animal rescue organization — someday.

“We want to do it when we retire,” Hall said. “That’s our dream, our retirement dream. But you just see so much need that you can’t really wait that long.”
