Not a snowflake to be found and if there were leaves on the trees you could mistake it for August. I was in Island Bay earlier today and there was no ice anywhere to be seen. Usually it is icebound by mid-November as is Kokoko. The forecast for the next week, or more, is a continuation of this weather with even milder temps later in the week. I checked with the water treatment plant on Bear Island and was told that the water temperature at their inlet actually increased last week. I think it is safe to say that we will be travelling by boats. at and after. Christmas this year, maybe even New Year's.
