A visceral story by Frank Bures appeared in the Minneapolis StarTribune on March 28th entitled: "Dead Cold" about a solo canoe close call on the Mississippi River near the Lake Street bridge where he tipped his canoe in the wind and cold. He references another incident detailing an essay about deaths on a glacier-filled lake that killed a trouop of Boy Scouts.
