Chickawaukee Ice Report and Sebago Speculation March 14

Yesterday’s storm, one measured inch of rain followed by 10 hours of snow left3-4 inches of partially frozen slush
with blown snow drifts, only an inch or so at Lloyd’s Beach. This looked like sailable ice at drive by distance.
However boots on the ice and axe in hand reveal patches of now (zero degrees at 7 AM) dry shell ice, one inch
thick and an inch of air. The back of the axe goes through easily, “if the axe goes through you will too”. If that
isn’t discouraging enough there are wet slush pits under some drifts and an ice fisherman reports driving
through 8-9 inch drifts further down the lake. No sailing today, next thaw needed.

Two inches of snow reported from Sebago, ice visible 50/50 snow ice pattern. No boot report.
