|MOST OF CHEQUAMEGON BAY IS NOW FROZEN OVER|
|ICE COVERED BEACH GRASS|
Happy New Year 2016! 10:00 AM. 20 degrees F at the ferry dock, 18 on the back porch.The sky is partly cloudy and overcast but is clearing from the W and may soon be a sunny day. The humidity is 85% and the barometer stands at 29.96" and is still falling. It is an O.K. start to the new year.
Things change quickly in the Northland. The lower Chequamegon Bay is frozen over in the last few days, by the looks of it from Ashland all the way to Washburn, at least.
And on the beach the beach grass is covered with frozen spray from the lake, the whole shoreline a crystal palace then crashes and crinkles like glass about one's feet.
