Ice Reports from the Broads side of Rattlesnake?

With the warm weather this past week.... wondering if anyone has checked the thickness on the broads side of Rattlesnake? Pressure ridges in the usual places?

Many thanks!

Great News on DSL!

Just signed up! Thanks so much for the info! Their quoted price for DSL + land line phone is less than what I'm currently paying for my VZW broadband modem/month.

RIA Ramp ice?

Hi everyone,

Has anyone seen if the RIA Ramp still has ice at the bottom or not?

If the wind is low enough we'll be on Rattlesnake tonight.

Thanks :)
