Jicarilla Hunt - Thursday, January 17, 2019


We have got quite a bit of winter around here and the last snow was very wet. All roads will be wet/slush/mud as long as the temperatures remain above freezing.  The ice sheet is under about 9-12" of slushy snow and water. With this much water and slush on top of the ice sheet conditions can be hard to "see" from shore. As always use extreme caution on the ice and use your best personal judgement before walking out onto unknown ice sheet.

We really need the water the snow has brought since the region is still in Exceptional Drought (the highest drought rating) so I'm not upset.

Please be extra careful out there and I'll get an update on conditions Tuesday (Monday is a holiday).

Take care and enjoy your weekend, build a snowman!
