Down beyond Ellsworth, one of the deepest lakes in Maine has been the place to skate for over a week. The ice last weekend was super black, and then the ice storm on Monday dumped ice. It leveled out to a nice grey surface and the skaters are still touring. Some of the cracks and open leads from earlier have healed. The big open hole in the middle is still there. It appears right now that tonight’s snow will miss it. The wind forecast for the weekend is very good.
Sorry to bombard you with three posts in a row, but things are happening quick and we don’t want to miss any opportunities.
