(N)Ice News From Maine

Picked up from the Chickawaukie Ice Boat Clubs site https://iceboat.me. They are making ice and keeping a watchful eye on things. Thanks for the report Bill. We are all looking forward to sailing soon. Some are eye balling progress in Minnesota but do believe even more are are betting on Maine. Any word out of VT? Thanks for the encouraging eye (ice) candy Thanks Bill…

Ice is coming Think Harder

Just to keep the juices flowing, here’s a shot of the narrows on Damariscotta Lake, looking north

The ice is about 3/4”, and was strong enough to withstand the gusts of wind which caused it to heave up and down, crackling in the pebbles and bullrushes alongshore. The main body of the lake is still open. This might not survive the warm front moving through Sunday through Tuesday, but what that front might do is give Plymouth Pond a surface. It hasn’t been checked since before this deep cold snap but it’s bound to be a few inches by now.
Anyone close by there willing to go have a look?

    Good morning, I walked out about 6 feet on Lake Monomonoc in Rindge, NH yesterday. Certainly not safe but the mere fact that a sheet has formed and thus protected from the wind, is very encouraging. Won’t be long. Think cold
