BARKER – Several days of crushing cold temperatures have left lots of ice floating near the shoreline of Lake Ontario.

Cheryl and Mike Wertman were at Barker today at Golden Hill State Park, near the Orleans County line, and Cheryl took these pictures.

“We were amazed at how much ice there was out on the lake,” she said. “It was floating out at least a half a mile.”

It will warm up on Sunday and Monday, with both days forecast for highs at 29 degrees.
