GILFORD — Ice-In, the term for when solid ice covers all of the M.S. Mount Washington cruise ship’s routes between the bays of Lake Winnipesaukee, occurred Monday.
So says David Emerson of Emerson Aviation, who calls Ice-In and Ice-Out each year. Emerson said the event occurred Monday, but because of the snowstorm that day, he wasn’t able to fly his plane over the lake to make the determination.
“Be careful out there. Just because I've called it, doesn't mean it’s safe,” he said.
“The ice is very thin and dangerous as tragically we saw with the deaths of three snowmobilers this past weekend. Lake Winnipesaukee with its springs and currents is very variable and unpredictable in ice thickness.”
