Winter Kite skating(ice)..finally!



Okay...It's apparently on . Here just north of Boston, anyway.

Friday I stopped by my lake on my ride home after work, which had ended at noon. Did some thorough ice testing;.... chopping holes... reading frozen ice bubbles...talking measure of thickness..


After the initial cautiousness, there's the point where you then get comfortable, and then, excited..... because you realize you are going to get your kite and ride!

The ice was very good but winds were pretty low so it was a fine mellow- if slow- cruise around.

Today..... skipping and waiting out the likely wet, rainy mix to refreeze but there is a few inches of snow that fell today on top . Lake may be a surface for skis now unless the rainwater absorbed all the snow to a liquid first.

...we'll see, I haven't been back to see yet.

Anyone else been on ice or snow... kiting? Videos?




A deep freeze has started in New England. But not just that. Lots of strong winds coming with it.

The ice age cometh..

Merry Kite-mass and Happy Harmonica...
