Chapmans is iced over but after this weekend it will be open with the heavy rain coming!

Any place with current should still be open!

Even here in Southern RI the lakes are frozen over, with the exception of small lakes or ponds with current, which is why I mentioned that.  ;)

Drove by Chapman's pond today. Its about 75% open. But the area around the ramp is still iced in. Should be wide open within a few days.

Huh. Either the ramp area opened up or someone slid their small boat across the ice (or broke through it) to get out to the open water. I drove by there around 7:30 this morning and it was still iced in around the ramp from what I could see from a distance.

Either way, it's getting mighty close.  :thumbup:

I drove by around 4 this afternoon. Looked like the entire lake was wide open!
