Tomahawk Artist Welcomes Visitors to Rainbow Igloo, Collects Donations for HAVEN
Published on 01/17/2022 under News Earlier this month, we told you about a Tomahawk artist who undertook a project to create a rainbow igloo. This past weekend, Michelle Arnott invited visitors to check out the now-completed ice shelter in her backyard. The igloo was built using ice bricks formed by freezing colored water in baking pans. Through her business Diamond Rock Glass Studio, Arnott is best known for work with stained-glass. The dyed ice blocks create a similar visual effect, particularly when illuminated at night. As word spread about the project, Arnott decided to open the igloo to visitors over the weekend. With guests both young and old stopping to snap a photo, Arnott took the opportunity to support a cause near and dear to her heart. She collected donations for the HAVEN shelter in Lincoln County. Over the course of the weekend, they were able to raise more than $400. Visitors were also treated to hot chocolate and penguin treats for kids. For those unable to attend, Arnott has photos of the completed and lit igloo on the Diamond Rock Facebook page. -Photo courtesy of Michelle Arnott-

On Saturday morning, the Nokomis Fire Department hosted around two dozen members of local dive teams made up of paramedics, EMT's, firefighters, and law enforcement. The training was designed to offer responders a chance at some real-life practice in a non-emergency situation. The crews set up their training session near the County Y bridge where they cut a hole into the ice. Like a real-life situation, the responders had to deal with unpredictable weather. Temperatures started off the day at around 10 degrees below zero. The exercise provides valuable training and experience for responders; a skill they hope they don't have to apply to a real-life emergency.
