So say the ice harvesters at Rockywold-Deephaven Camps, who on Saturday completed another successful harvest, which is done for another season entirely — summer.
Their three-day harvest prepares more than 3,600 ice blocks or about 100 tons of ice for the camp's summer customers, who prefer using antique ice boxes instead of refrigerators.
"I can't say it's fun; it's work that has to be done," he said.
Actually, this year's harvest was unique. It was one of the earliest starts they've had.
Last year's early winter warmth pushed the harvest to the beginning of February. "Everyone said it was global warming last winter," Jurczynski said
