Throughout yesterday and over night we have had excellent progress. This morning, Campbells Point retirement home reports we still have open water in an arc around the point extending out about 150 feet. The open "pond" out from Grosvenors may still be open, he said very hard to tell. The hermit at Indian bay tells us He sees ice from his perspective. With the temperatures we have had and the slow ice growth and even loss, and looking at the forecast temps, I don't anticipate walking out to do any drilling in the new ice areas for a while yet (week?). We still don't have total freeze over. The current at the narrows is a concern. The dropping water levels may have left suspended ice anywhere along the shore line. REMEMBER, ICE IS NEVER CONSIDERED SAFE BY THE OPP. Words to remember.
