Back Cove is iced in.
It's hazardous duty making your way along the shoreline of Baxter Boulevard these days. I saw on the news last night that along the shores of Nantucket Island, off of Massachusetts, huge chunks of ice have come ashore. In years past, I've seen shots of very large pieces creeping along the Great Lakes too. The pictures showed them about the size of Buicks. Now, along the shores of our Back Cove the ice has drifted up on the banks but nothing even compared to VWs let alone Buick6's. Little bitty hunks, that's all. As you can see also, even though the temperatures have been mid to high 40s this week and rumor has it they will inch over 50 today, Back Cove is still iced in and will be for a few more days.
To the left in this photo is all open water to England.
It's clear sailing, if you are so inclined.
