Get those ice skates ready

The Baltimore Sun reports that the Chesapeake Bay might freeze over.

After a fast start to the ice-breaking season in December, sheets of frozen water are again starting to knit together in tributary shallows.

It’s slightly disingenuous of The Sun to then show a photo of people walking on ice on the home page tease of this story, because a few grafs into the story the possibility of ice speed-skating from Annapolis to Kent Island becomes pretty remote.

And while it won’t rival the unrelenting conditions of the “Big Freeze” of 1977, when people walked and drove across the bay in the shadow of the Bay Bridge, this weekend’s temperatures and 30-knot gusts were expected to accelerate the creation of massive ice plates.

Damn, and I just sharpened my blades in preparation!
