Landed on a lake today in Boeing 737, didnt have to swim to shore

I'm way up North in Nunavat, right near Cambridge Bay. I have been told we have over 7 feet right now.

I was home over the christmas holiday and am pretty sure the ice roads were open from Wrigley NT to Norman wells, and further as we drove to Fort Good Hope. Not sure if they opened the Colville lake road though.
