Boots on the Ice,, Chickawaukee Dec 18

BOOTS IN THE SNOW, Chickawaukee, Wed. Dec 18


          Our forecast 4-8 inches of snow Tuesday PM turned out to be 18 inches, very light fluffy stuff that is going to drift nicely in the coming NW winds.  We had a minimum 6 inches of wind packed snow yesterday on the ice, that brings us up to 24 inches.  The wind will grind up the fluffy stuff into more dense packed drifts, then averaging around a foot.  Temps. are  forecast to climb through the weekend of mixed precipitation and daytime temps in the 30s.  It will all likely turn into a ghastly crunchy mess.

          This morning the “” of Jordan Bay looks like waves on water so we may well have new ice after Christmas.
