Frigid Temps Fire Up Thrill Seekers In Johnson County

IOWA CITY, Iowa - Thrill seekers in Johnson County said it was the perfect day to enjoy a little known activity: ice boating.

"The wind is blowing about 25 miles-an-hour," said Eric Sauter of Iowa City. "The wind chill is really cold."

Sauter and two others went ice boating on Lake MacBride Monday afternoon for more than an hour. Temperatures were around zero with wind chills hovering between -20 and -30 degrees.

"It's prime out there," said Sauter. "It's actually the first time in two years we've had the conditions to do this."

Ice boats are specialized sail boats, with metal skis. Riders control the boats with their arms while picking up momentum from the wind.

Few others enjoyed the bitter cold Monday. Only two others were on the lake, both ice fishing.

"The wind is ripping," said Briar Patterson. "Makes it ten times worse than it should be."
