Making Ice!

Dropped into the Lower Manorburn tonight to see how it is after the weekend.  Has made ice since we visited yesterday morning.  Had a relaxing evening skate on hard smooth ice - and great to be skating freely on the Manorburn! What a great way to finish a days work!
Ice depth in Rush Cutters 35-40 mm - getting less as you get out of the bay. Safe but creaked a bit due to the weakening effect of above 0 deg.  A few stones and things on the ice but easily avoided. Should be great after a cold night and a good depth to build on through the week.  Did not check other areas due to fading light.

Awesome news!

I assumed the increase in temperature would have butchered the ice quality. Good to know it actually increased :)

I figured it wouldn't be totally gone, but I expected it to be unskateable at the moment.
