Dec. 1st

Walked to the CAMP building today on the ice for the first time this year.  occasional patches of slush with a thin layer of snow, maybe an inch thick, with a crusty texture.  Drilled numerous holes and we basically have 3.5" of good blue ice.  The overnight temperatures haven't been helping our cause, being single digits and being close to thaw during the day with a +1 forecast on Friday.
