Local Ice reports 1/18/’14

After sailing Chicky’s North end, the best end, the grade has dropped to1-2, barely sailable except near the shore. Megunticook reported by Squibb as 80% styrofoam with one patch of nice skateable ice, about 2 acres midway up the lake next to the turnpike that runs along the lake. Bunting and Lampton explored Damariscotta out from the beach and ramp which looks nice in the Dammy cam. Off screen further from shore it is “a wasteland of lumps”. Maybe the wind will wear away the lumps. Maybe there are better areas elsewhere on the lake, we need a drone. Maybe we should all drive to Plattsburgh.
