Last weekend I attended the annual Ice Harvest at Hanford Mills in East Meredith, NY. This photo was taken in 2004 when they still used a mule to score the ice. Unfortunately they no longer use the mule but it is still a fascinating event to witness. The blocks that are sawn from the ice are 17" think and weigh approximately 65# each. They are stored in an ice house and will last until December.
You can see more photos here.
I also attended a sleigh rally at the Winter Fest in Bainbridge, NY two weeks ago. Some very nice sleighs attended. You can see photos from that event here.
