Plan A, Plan B
Well Folks, we were hoping that a New England Championship and get-together would be a possibility for Sebago this weekend but the weather doesn’t look good- Plan B is to try and squeeze in the Sebago Open in the early part of the day Saturday- Will press Fortier for details-
See the forecast below, shamelessly cut and pasted from the NOAA site with subtitles by me:
-Saturday- Increasing clouds, with a high near 47. Northwest wind around 5 mph becoming northeast in the afternoon.
(Warm enough to make the ice really soft but not enough breeze to power through it)
-Saturday Night- Rain before 4am, then freezing rain. Low around 31. Northeast wind 5 to 15 mph. Chance of precipitation is 90%.
(Big Zamboni effect but not quite cold enough to lock the surface back in….)
-Sunday- Freezing rain before 10am, then rain between 10am and noon, then rain, possibly mixed with sleet after noon. High near 35. North wind around 15 mph. Chance of precipitation is 90%.
(No subtitle necessary)
So we postpone all NEIYA activity for now- some forecasts predicting a late spring, maybe still a chance to get everyone together up at Moosehead or someplace for one last blast! Don’t hang it up yet folks….
Stay tuned- and Think Ice! T
