Chiakawaukee Ice Monday 12/19

All snow long gone. Lovely grade 10 ice in northern bay at Lloyd’s Heron beach, fine skating. However the cake is not done yet, large holes in northern half and more apparent open water at south end. The good skating ice here is 1 1/2 to 4 inches. The big holes need two cold nights, tonight will be, Tuesday night?? Some breeze now will keep these open at least for the daytime. Warming Tuesday through Thursday with possible rain/snow showers Thursday, then colder again for the elusive Christmas regatta.
