An ominous sliver of bright red sky peering through the cloud cover over Ross Island. A steady breeze from NNE a harbinger of the messey weather headed both from the south and west. Gale force from noon today till tomorrow afternoon. We are on the edge of a snow event then rain, wth a bit of freezing rain in the mix during the transition from snow to rain sometime within the next twenty-four hours.
No direct report from anyone scalloping, just anecdotal they are scarce with the most being reported in the two basket tow then dropping off to less after a very few tows. Yesterday the fleet had spread out some, today will be difficult to find an area the wind won't drive them.
NHL LEGENDS game getting more interest, one of the players had to drop off. The replacement Matt STAIRS, a New Brunswick native retired from Major League baseball this past season, folks excited to have him in the mix.
