We are pretty cold here this morning, my weather station is showing zero now at almost 10 a.m., and a low of -10 overnight. The wind is blustery, and the wind chill is bouncing around. I saw -13 a few minutes ago, but it's really all over the place.
We had two inches of new snow during the day yesterday and perhaps some fell last night. The weather isn't going to get much better for a few days. We'll have cold and wind and then we're getting an old fashioned nor'easter beginning Tuesday for a couple days. It should begin to moderate by Thursday or so. In the meantime, we are no doubt gaining ice at the pond. Diane Rossi messaged me a few minutes ago there is a car out on the ice and a couple of fishing shanties down near the state access. They have until the last Sunday of March before shanties have to be off the ice - unless the weather changes radically and makes the ice unsafe. We're thinking the ice will definitely make it into April, so there shouldn't be any worries about having to end the contest early this year! Whoopee!
