So far this year the ice has been fickle. One morning last week after a day of strong southernly winds there was a thin mass of ice chunks forming along the shoreline, it hung just off shore for a brief morning and then it floated away. The harbors and protected areas have formed pancake ice and offer some photographic opportunities, otherwise it is still a wait and see situation. Should the conditions change (which can happen in a few hours) I will send out a special report.
