Two months to"Ice Out."

For you of a more southern clime I wanted to share my anticipatiion of sailing
after we loose the ice. Usually happens April 20, as late as May 10.
Some times we get a "mild" Spring and can sail in early April.

travlineasy will become famous soon enough
Ice Out has already begun in the People's Republic of Maryland. Went over the lower Susquehanna River a couple days ago and most of the ice, other than some still in the marinas, was pretty much gone. C'mon spring!

Harbour here completly froze over this year just before Christmas, never saw that in my 30 years living here on the East coast of the Rip off Republic.
Gone now but not realy saiing season yet as insurence dosn,t kick in till April tho I do slip out on the odd good day.
Was out for a walk with the dog Christmas morning, heard a splash and she was in the water.
Must have sliped on the ice along the edge. She couldn,t swim through the ice so had to manouver a skiff tied on a slip mooring to get her out.
Imagine Christmas withiout the 16 year old family pet
Had to stop one young chap from jumping in to rescue her, brave but foolish. Alls well that ends well.
Safe strolling
