Chickawaukee slushwich

One day post 8 inches of snow on wet ice we have 1 1/2 inches of coarse pebble grain gray snow ice, 1/2 inch or so of water and what was left of foundation black ice reported recently (4+ inches perhaps). I cannot stomp through the top layer even in the warm afternoon sun, it seems skateable and probably sailable with one more cold night (15 last night). Damariscotta and Megunticook likely similar, but Moosehead calls.
