Dave Fortier just checked in with the results of his Sebago Expedition. Nasons Beach is plowed, but the launch ramp is not. The black ice begins a hundred yards from the shore, defended by a layer of snow two feet thick. He decided not to walk out and chop a hole, but continued north checking down every small road he could. Same story everywhere. Even worse on the east side where there is a much wider plate of snow covered ice.
So there it is: set up last night, probably and inch by now; with tonight in the sub-zeros an easy two inches tomorrow. Are we mere men, or are we iceboaters? Will we mobilize machines from Nasons Beach to blaze a trail to the ice? Will we snatch this precious gift from the calloused hand of Mother Nature as she prepares to dump snow all over it on Sunday?
