Ice is Forming in the Bays!
Cool temperatures have moved into our region this week with lows in the teens. The water temperature has taken a dive and we have taken the first step in making ice for the season.  The forecast is calling for lows in the 20’s this week. We will be hoping for it to only continue to cool down more next week and really kick off the freezing.  History tells us it only takes a few weeks to make a good base of ice once Mother Nature decides to cool off.  Stay tuned to our reports. We are excited to get the season off to a start but safety first! We will start pulling houses out once we have 8 inches of good ice.
