First Ice!

And we’re not talking about the rain barrel variety. Here’s Tolman Pond in Rockport this afternoon. Don’t know how thick it is, but at the moment it is surviving a very strong northwest wind. Tonight will be in the single digits.

Tolman Pond has generally been fairly reliable as a proxy for Plymouth Pond, so it might be time to rouse the sleeping spys. The long term forecast isn’t wonderful, but it’s fine to hope and fun to imagine the possibilities.
A few years ago we had Plymouth come in on a Thursday, thicken nicely on Friday, and we sailed it all weekend. It was penciled by Sunday afternoon and gone Monday.
