Once when I was up in Glens Falls we went somewhere and they had a thick
walled barn full of ice stored with shavings of wood to keep it from freezing
the blocks together. It was a hot summer day out but freezing in the "ice"
barn. I remember seeing picture where horse drawn wagons were on the shore of
a lake and with big saws they were cutting the ice and dragging the blocks to
the shore where the wagon was.

My Mother remembers when she was a kid her grandfather would grind up ice
from the "Ice House" and they would have Maple sugar melted and poured over
it. A big treat in them bygone days Deanna
