|CHEQUAMEGON BAY AT ASHLAND, ALL ICED OVER AGAIN|
Thursday, 8:00 AM. 34 degrees F at the ferry dock, 33 on the back porch. Wind variable and calm. The skies are mostly high and cloudy, the humidity 90%. The barometer is falling, now at 30.09". The forecast calls for high temperatures in the 40's and 59's, the lows above freezing. The winds should be moderate at best, with no significant precipitation. March is going out like a lamb in our region, at least.
Several days ago the view of the Bay at Ashland was all open water, no ice. Yesterday it was iced over again, Chequamegon Bay full of pack ice, blown in from the open lake by a brisk NE wind.
It won't last long, but Chequamegon Bay is all iced over again.
