Miss Chickie has slipped under the blanket again after showing a changing stripy congealing slush/drift surface even during most of Sunday’s light snow fall and gale winds. Not all that much snow fell, maybe 3-4 inches but it blew and is still blowing on Monday with snow devils crossing the lake at ice boat speeds, easily 40MPH.
Rain forecast for Tuesday will damp down the drifting and stabilize the surface. This is all part of the usual process for the expected March resurfacing and often fine sailing. The foundation ice was about a foot thick, good clear hard stuff a couple of days ago. Patience.
