Eastern Iowans water ski on New Year's Eve

EVANSDALE (KWWL) -

Some eastern Iowans are ready for the snow - snowmobilers, cross country skiers, those who depend on snow for a living but others are extremely happy with days like Saturday.
 Members of the Waterhawks ski team put on their skis and headed to Eagle Lake Saturday to take advantage of the warmer-than-usual weather.
 The group gathered to do some simple skiing, build pyramids and even barefoot ski.
 When asked why they did it, many said they just wanted to be able to say they waterskiied on New Year's Eve.
 "It's not all that often we don't have ice on the lake this time of year. It's 48 degrees, it's a little windy, but no ice so we took advantage of the opportunity," said Waterhawks member Josh Seamans.
 This is the first time the Waterhawks have been able to ski on New Year's Eve in almost 12 years.
