A wonderful gift appeared under the heavenly tree this morning. Barnegat Bay skimmed over from shore to frozen shore. Ice in New Jersey isn’t generally big news here at CIBC but the Jersey guys deserve a little attention every now and then. They’ve been making the long drive north for ice since they have found less local ice in recent years.
This Christmas plate appears to be a grade .5, half inch thick. It will probably grow over the next few days before locally seasonable temps return.
Back in Maine there will be a number of possibilities for sailing this week. Plymouth is locked in with plate of smooth black ice, and we are awaiting a report from Pushaw later today. If anyone can have a look at Sabattus, that would be great.
Meanwhile, wishing everyone lots of sails and runners under the tree, and great cheer with family and friends.
