after spending three days in ice houses.  KSTP-TV is reporting that as many as 100 anglers in 45 ice houses were stuck on the ice when high winds and drifting snow left them unable to get off the lake.  One of those stranded says that snowdrifts between four and seven feet high piled up more quickly than they could be shoveled, and rescuers were unable to reach them because the ice road onto the lake had become impassable.  There were no reports of injuries.
