A Short Walk on Chicky

There is indeed a slender ribbon of open water across the “broads” of Chickawaukee. Most of the lake is mostly shiny ice with some grey islands and bands where the snow had wet out the last couple of days. The shiny grade ten stuff is 2 inch slushwich, the grey granular stuff is solid, couple of inches of snow ice and then black foundation ice 5-6
inches thick. The Christmas present snow storm tomorrow is forecast for 6 plus inches and lots of wind, NE with the snow, then NW with very cold air, sub zero at night, for the rest of the week. This looks like drift city before the cold. Maybe the central open water will get puttied up with snow and solidify. Jordan Bay on Sebago Cam is open water, maybe it will freeze after being cooled by snow, ditto pump house bay at the South end, but no cam there.

Merry Christmas, look for New Year’s ice.
