Ice Status – For Weekend of 2/11

Hi Everyone,

Our team of ice scouts were out the last few days searching for ice. Unfortunately, there is a lot of great thick ice covered with varying depths of snow.

Worden Pond in Wakefield, RI has about 6″ of ice consistently covered with 4″ of crusty snow.

Ninnigret in Charlestown, RI is a brackish body of water with an outlet to the Atlantic. It has 3-4″ of grey ice and is not currently covered in snow, but the top layer was slushy after a full day of sun which is not great. I will try to check this ice tomorrow.

Pocopoaug Lake in East Hampton, CT has about 6-7″ of ice, but snow depth is about 5″.

Seymour and Long Pond in Harwich were checked yesterday by Rick Bishop and they opened up sometime on Wednesday.

Bob S and his wife, Val, have been cross country skiing across many lakes this week and nothing found so far.

Jay says NH is fully snowed out. Bill reports the same in Maine.

If any things wets out for Monday, we will post ASAP.

Thanks to those that were out looking for ice.

    Hi Karen/T Went to Ninnigrett today, and while it was white , it was covered by only about 1 cm. Snow, and the ice beneath was firm enough to support blades. I didn’t chop holes, but folks were on it last week, and it has been nothing but below freezing since then. I plan to go there on Saturday afternoon. And others will be there as well. Thank you for the nice report! U soon? Will p.s. this is a long term project, but would be correct for a place like Ninni on Saturday

    All,

    The sailing situation on the Hudson is very tenuous and the locals are not calling it anywhere near sailable condition. I may be going up there this weekend just because i need to get out and I enjoy seeing the old stern steerers but not looking like a sailing opportunity.

    FWIW, I have been out of little EDDY Pond in Auburn MA 3 times this month. Last time was 6 Feb just before the latest snowfall. As a rank newbie I am willing to go in pretty margional conditions. It was puffy and I discovered what it’s like to go from 20+ to zero almost instantly when hitting crusty snow patches. Did get one runner in the air under one 28 mph sprint! Built a sidecar to take my grandson on…I LOVE THIS!
