Gunnar Berg, the mastermind of CyberPine Wireless Networks, which provides internet access to Rockywold-Deephaven Camps was repairing the antenna on the Red Hill Firetower yesterday (March 16th) and took this photo of the Squam ice going out. Most of the islands are ice free, although Bennet Cove and Sandwich Bay are still covered with ice.
The ice is starting to break up on Squam Lake on March 16th, which is about a month earlier than usual. The ice has opened up from Deephaven to Otter and Birch Islands. The boating season will be here soon! Here is a photograph from Flagstaff Point looking across the Bight to Pine Needle Point. Eric
The weather at Squam has been unseasonably warm for mid March. The past five days have been warm with clear blue skies and the ice along the Deephaven shore is starting to break up. Here is a photograph from Wednesday morning (March 10th) at Ark.
