On the rocks?
While spring is starting to kick old man winter back north of the arctic circle, we still have a while before we're able to have ice free water in the backyard.
As you can see here, the white in the satellite photo is the ice that's currently in the bay of Green Bay as of today. The whole lower bay is chocked full of ice, and the northern line is almost a direct shot from Washington Island to the west side.
The fisherman off of the house claim 9+ inches thick about 3/4 mile from shore and near the shore its easily 14-15 inches thick.
On the plus side, this morning there was a sliver of open water about a mile offshore.
So, if you need any ice for your drinks, let me know as we'll have plenty around for a while. (sigh)
