Still ice!

Was surprised to see so much ice still around after the last few days of rain and warmer wind.
Coalpit had 80mm plus on the shady side and out to the middle.  Ice was hard but wet and in some places beginning to creak in the warmth.  Wind blown debris on the surface with some wind thaw holes starting to appear.
Hoffman - gone off around the edge.
Idaburn still had good coverage all over - up to 100mm.  Was starting to creak in the main basin but solid in the first half of the gorge  and ok to the dam.  Had a good skate in the gorge on hard ice.
Will break up fast if we don't get a frost or two.
