Chickawaukee Ice Report Wednesday Feb. 3

Our “Home Ice” has diminished from 6-8 inches last week to 3 1/2-6
inches today. A short ride on the ice bike this AM on already wet ice from the warm SE wind ran into a sheet of water flowing with the maybe 10 mph wind over the surface from the Southern inland sea, never frozen, and now twice as big as last week. We are forecast to have SE wind up to 40 mph and temps around 50 this evening with 1/2 to 1 inch of rain. This could melt off another inch and no real ice building teens or single numbers are in sight for the rest of the week. No report from Damariscotta which usually is similar to Chicky. Dammny cam and Sebago cam seem both out of order.

The whole winter seems out of order. Lloyd
