I was wrong earlier with my rabbit-out-of-a-hat magic metaphor. This was sound science, not magic or a stroke of luck. It’s the result of watching countless weather forecasts, trying to average them out, and getting solid intel from on the ice observations. Thanks Denis!
This video shows the ice conditions Friday, Saturday, and then today.
Of course there’s some good sailing footage in there as well. If you can dub in a short piece from the fat lady you’ll get the total picture.
