OTC on Ice moved off Otter Tail Lake
A popular musical event in lakes country is being moved off a frozen lake for safety reasons this year.
OTC on Ice is usually held on Otter Tail Lake, but because of variable ice depths this year, it's being moved to Thumper Pond in Ottertail.
Event organizers say, "We've been checking ice thickness frequently and we've found spots on Otter Tail with as much as 18 inches of ice, we've also found spots with as little as 9 inches."
The winter's heavy snow is making ice formation difficult on many lakes in the region.
