Water water everywhere, but not a drop to drink. So says the ancient mariner. It might as well have been the ancient Mainer. Many of the critical lakes have wetted out beautifully. Moosehead and South Twin still are snow but Jordan Bay, Damariscotta, Chickie, Megunticook and possibly Great Pond (still waiting for intel). But the forecast is borderline for all of the above, punctuated with snow on Sunday. Temps and wind are maybe ok, but nothing in the bag.
Frank and Denis are sailing Lac St. Francois tomorrow based on local knowledge, not eyeballs on the ice. We will await their report. While we wait we’ll check Damariscotta Lake in the morning for access and recovery and report here what we find.
