I made it back home to Kineras Bay yesterday afternoon.  I was shocked to see how much ice was lost over the past week.  There is basically no snow and no ice except in back bays.  Glen Burney looked completely open and the channel was completely open. This picture shows Kineras Bay.  Taken Dec.29/14
