I also should say for context that i was taking my father in law out that day, who is relatively inexperienced on ice. I felt comfortable with everything up until the point that all this started, but I was essentially soloing the easy grade 2 ice. It made it feel sketchier. I realize what kind of assessment could be had from below, and I respect that perspective, but i actually felt the pieces hitting me and how heavy they were. Some may have even had some ice in them judging by one sore spot on my shoulder today. Snow does this funny thing when water is running in or around it and then it gets cold at night...it freezes. I had a whole lot of concerns about it (obviously) and felt that it was 100% avoidable. While my reaction seems heavy, my safety is heavy and I felt like even though there werent any consequences from the situation, there could have really been some if I hadn't done things the right way as it unfolded. Someone else putting me in danger, even if it's only potential danger, warrants a heavy reaction in my book.
So ya, I was pissed.
