Ice houses are shown Saturday on Lake Okabena in Worthington. The ice off of Sailboard Beach was around 6 inches thick, but people who wish to ice-fish may still want to exercise caution — the creeks and tile lines were all running thanks in part to warm weather last week. (Tim Middagh/Daily Globe)

Okabena-Ocheda Watershed District Administrator Dan Livdahl captured this image of an algae bloom along Sailboard Beach on Lake Okabena Tuesday. Livdahl said the bloom, which gives the appearance of thick, blue-green paint along the lakeshore, likely settled along the shoreline because of warm air temperatures and a lack of wind.
