Fire And Ice


"Fire and Ice" is a popular poem by Robert Frost that discusses the end of the world, likening the elemental force of fire with the emotion of desire, and ice with hate. Published in December 1920 in Harper's Magazine[1] and in 1923 in his Pulitzer Prize-winning book New Hampshire, "Fire and Ice" is one of Frost's best-known and most anthologized poems.[2]

Eat, drink, and play the day away! Fire and Ice Festival and Bonspiel is open to the public and free to attend. The event is hosted by Chaska's Parks and Recreation Department at Firemen's Park and Chaska Curling and Event Center each summer. Enjoy two days of live music, food and beverages (for purchase), family-friendly activities, and fireworks. Explore this page to learn more about the festival activity schedule, bonspiel, and sponsor information.


The goal of the Boreal Fires team is to increase community resilience to wildfire by improving evaluations of short-term fire risk, predictions of fire behavior, and understanding of fire mitigation strategies and of wildfire impacts on ecosystem services. Researchers focus on Interior and Southcentral Alaska and use climate modeling, fieldwork, hyperspectral remote sensing, and survey approaches to address their research questions.


All the fun at Fire & Ice is sure to work up an appetite. Throughout the event, we encourage you to enjoy our downtown restaurants. For a meal that matches our theme, head to Blackworth Live Fire Grill, where your food is cooked over a crackling wood fire. Reservations here are strongly suggested.


The free event offers winter activities that celebrate the best of the bold north, including sled dog rides, a youth ice fishing contest, ice games, recycle bin races, horse-drawn trolley rides, pony rides, box hockey, ice skating, food trucks, bonfire pits, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing, weather permitting.


A $250 prize will be awarded to the first sleuth who finds the medallion. Only Plymouth residents are eligible. There is no need to register or pay to participate. For clues and more information, visit plymouthmn.gov/fireandice.


Patagonia is a land of fire and ice. Here, massive glaciers and active volcanoes form a wild landscape unlike any other. Spend a semester amid soaring peaks, narrow fjords, and fields of ice as you study conservation and the impacts of climate change. The trails of Torres del Paine National Park will become your classroom for research and field work. The semester ends with an extensive research project in the field.


This course focuses on ecology as a discipline, biodiversity, and the Patagonian ecoregions and habitats that have evolved with short growing seasons, tenacious southwesterly winds, and fierce winters. We will examine the ecology and evolution of faunal species such as guanaco (related to the llama), Magellanic and king penguins, and the flightless ñandúes, most of them endemic to the region. We will explore ecological succession, including primary succession, which is how life recruits into new environments, such as bare rock after glacial retreat or after volcanic eruptions. We will explore a remarkable climatological gradient from Magellanic rainforests to semi-arid pampa. We will also travel to the temperate rainforests of Northern Patagonia.Thematically, we will traverse alpine ecology, exposed terrestrial ecology, coastal ecology, marine ecology, and fire ecology. From the central focus on the theory and practice of ecology, we will expand to investigate relationships between people and nature in conservation, resilience, and environmental challenges. We will explore the role of protected areas in conservation, invasive species, human-landscape interactions, and current and predicted changes due to climate change. The course is constructed so that the role of climate in shaping ecosystems and ecological relations are central to discussions and observations.


The American Red Cross provides help and hope across the Capital Region 365 days a year. Whether responding to home fires, preparing for ice storms, supporting local veterans, or collecting lifesaving blood, the Red Cross is there when it's needed most.


An ice carving competition is held Jan. 21, with students from area culinary schools crafting incredible sculptures from solid blocks of ice. Food trucks and the TasteFest & Beer Tent are popular features and plentiful firepits dot the area to keep toes and hands warm. Breath-taking fireworks light the night sky on Friday and Saturday night of the festival.


Satellites first detected evidence of the fire on July 31, 2017. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) and Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) on Suomi NPP collected daily images of smoke streaming from the fire over the next week. The Operational Land Imager (OLI) on Landsat 8 captured this more detailed image of the fire on August 3, 2017.While it is not unprecedented for satellites to observe fire activity in Greenland, a preliminary analysis by Stef Lhermitte of Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands suggests that MODIS has detected far more fire activity in Greenland in 2017 than it did during any other year since the sensor began collecting data in 2000.


It is not clear what triggered this fire, though a lack of documented lightning prior to its ignition suggests the fire was probably triggered by human activity. The area is regularly used by reindeer hunters, and is not too far from a town with a population of 5,500 people.
