Merry Christmas, CIBC. Under the tree this morning is a large fine lake with 6-8″ of hard re-frozen snow melt. A little rough in places but very sailable. There’s a large patch of black ice in the middle of the broads which was not checked, but pending diplomatic concessions at the home hearth, it might be possible to make a further inspection this afternoon with the idea of setting up boats tomorrow. Bog Bridge launch is a bit of a mess with snow banks making access difficult. It also has not fully wet out but the frozen snow crust appears to hold up to a runner that I sat on, so this would be the best launch site. Stand by for confirmation!
