@Bitkar What wildlife is in CZ?
besides usuall stuff as deer, boar and so... the wildest are only wolves and lynx. Sometimes we get a visit of a bear in the eastmost part of CZ from Slovakia (bears are regular there). Basically there is nothing that can eat you, kill you and so. Its a pretty safe country :)

My fortune in bitcoin has more than quintupled. Some months ago I signed up at Coinbase, got $20 worth, and intended to buy low and sell high on the short term ups and downs. Ride the waves not the tide. I expected to end up with zero, say "well that was interesting", and quit that. Now prices are rocketing upward and my investment is worth over $100. I will invest some more and ride this tsunami. But they are so deluged with web traffic that I can't log in.

Ice has achieved barely necessary thickness. Strapped on skates and went for it.
Pebbly and rough near shore but very smooth past that. Very slight heavy frost/snow layer on top- good because it reveals wet spots- which I didn't see any of.
There's just something about that adrenaline rush when your gliding weight starts a crack that zips like lightning from beneath your feet and propagates audibly across the lake.
Staying near the shallows (for now) and wearing life jacket (always). It may or may not save your life, but at least it makes it easier to return your body to mother.

Well, the ice may be ok for skating but...
I saw the first two snowmobiles out on the lake last night. One of them promptly drove his machine right into the open water out in the middle.
Big excitement in the neighborhood with cops and fire trucks and they got a chance to practice their ice rescue skills when they pulled they guy out, luckily for him still able to regret his poor decision making skills.
Protip: don't make your first run at high speed...in the dark...on questionable ice. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

How many snowmobiles are on the bottom of that lake? That guy didn't have spikes on a cord like you described once.

I drove for some hang/paraglider pilots recently. Learned glider lingo "throw your laundry" means deploy your parachute. It is time to pay the business license fee but city hall is closed for cooties, can't pay online, cash forbidden by mail, and I don't have checks for the business. I'll get a cashiers check.

One guy/machine went in from what I've heard; they fished the guy out but don't know about the machine. I imagine it is still down there.
Probably some local scuba divers who would be keen to try to find it. I think if 'officials' have to go get it they bill the owner.
I went skating the following day anyway. An inch or inch & a half of snow on the ice slows you down and increases the workload a little.
Bare ice is so much nicer for that glide.
