There is a hard cold snap gripping the Eastern United States which isn’t much fun unless you are trying to make ice
Just a week ago Alton Bay was reporting open water but today they are watching significant ice developing!
”Good Saturday Morning! It’s over cast and 3 degrees below 0 in Alton Bay. I checked the ice we have approximately 71/2” to 8” in the bay it’s coming along!!”
They need a minimum of 12” everywhere - runway, taxiway, parking, access routes, and snow removal & equipment areas - before they can open. Then also need to be able to keep everything plowed.
