1 day of 5 degree temps should turn open water into safe ice  ??? 

If nothing else this chart just gave me more to obsess about until I get on the ice.. thanks  ;D

Just bumping this up for the ice charts.   With the forecast and using the chart not factoring in the wind and rounding up the temps a bit locally should have 4 inches of ice by the weekend.    I figured others may like to see the chart.   

Sorry I didn't realize this was in the Maine forums.
