Got ice?


Hi, If you live near a lake and have a drill how about testing the ice thickness? We have heard rumors of animals and snow mobiles on Lake Algonquin. I would suspect its safe to walk on and more by now.

If you can help us out and get us some ice thickness reports and post them here that would be great. Just be careful. You can also measure an ice fishing hole the key word there is "measure" bring a tape measure don't ask the fisherman emoticon

Some of the regular ice checkers are super busy working on their race cars and also with the usual AMEC pre ice race set up stuff and we need the help.

I will try to check out Summit Lake south west of Cobleskill this week.

Thanks!

Dave B

Good. I was about to email someone today to see if anyone knew the ice thickness. Paul posted 6" out in NH. We have to be close to that

Re: Got ice?


Caleb,
the lake I checked is Lake Iroquois in west-central Vermont. For reference, it has no dam, is about 5000x2000 feet and lies at an elevation of 100-200 feet above sea level.
Yes, 6 inches of good looking ice.
The 242 SLS driver ed Corolla is ready to go.
See you guys soon!

There is 6" of good ice on Summit lake near Cobleskill with a couple of inches of snow. We are in great shape for this date especially when compared to last year at this time when I think every lake was open water emoticon

We need to get a report from Lake Algonquin soon.

I'm scheduled to work January 8th. Should I try to switch, or do you think we wont be ready to race?

I am pretty sure we won't have enough ice for that weekend but you never know until we get closer. We are working on getting an ice report from Lake Algonquin which always seems to have the most ice. But my general feeling is it will be later in January before we start the season.

The report from Lake Algonquin is 8" to 9" of ice. We will check it closer after it cools back down later this week or early next week.

You better get those cars ready to run emoticon

We are almost there! 9' to 12" of nice ice with 3" to 6" of light fluffy snow on Lake Algonquin in Wells. Checked it myself Friday afternoon emoticon

If your not ready to race you better start burning the candle at both ends emoticon

Damn. What are the odds of the 8th if we're that close? I might have to find someone to switch. I need to take a trip up to Lake George to see what that looks like
