Put-in-Bay, surrounded by heavy fog on Lake Erie and temperature readings rising to 50°F, witnesses a tactical ice shanty retreat.  Visibility is severely reduced, the snow-melt has created large pools of water, and the ice is thinning.  Rain in today’s afternoon and evening weather forecast promises more deteriorating conditions.  Put-in-Bay Volunteer Fire Department Co-chief Doug Wilhelm monitored the West Shore on a well-equipped all-terrain vehicle.Lake Erie Ice fog
