Nov. 30

Out today to do some testing.  Walking out about 200 feet, to get away from slushy area closer to shore, and found 3" of good ice.  We have had about a inch of growth since the 27th.  Heading into Jackfish bay around the docks found 3" of good ice, topped with an 1"-1.5" of white slush ice.  In the same area, a crust was found with an inch of water underneath then 3" of good ice.  Interesting feeling to break through a crust to the wet.  Keep in mind white ice, frozen slush, is only worth 50% of good clear blue ice.
