There was an optimistic pause in the snow yesterday at which point Pushaw had received less than an inch, while surrounding areas got between five and seven inches.
But then phase two came pounding in overnight and finished the job. Good news is that this lake probably got less snow than most, so could be the first one to recover. At the other end of the possibility spectrum, Jordan bay is still impending this morning. Deep cold coming the next few days might just lock it up. Keep an eye on the web cam, and maybe some of you local guys could go have a look at some point.
One of the great benefits of marginal ice all winter is the lack of snowmobiles, ATV’s and trucks on the ice. There have been no ruts all winter. The Narrows of Damariscotta Lake are notoriously stove up this time of year. Have a look the them now, in this video put together by Denis Guertin. Actually, look at all the wonderful ice, but be careful not to drool in your keyboard. Hopefully you’ll watch this on the big screen, not a phone:
What an awesome day! Thanks for the great video Bill.
