I went with some family to Wrightsville Reservoir after the reservoir was in the shade and it was wonderful. Lots of smooth ice, and 25% islands of orange peel. There’s a fair amount of cracks, which with good light or mostly visible and avoidable, but there is a few tricky ones. I think it’s gonna be great until about 10 o’clock tomorrow morning seemed like the ice was plenty thick. 
Eight pokes in the middle didn’t get me through. Three pokes on the first 15 feet got me through to water but then there was at least a couple inches of ice underneath that so the only vulnerable spot is where the reservoir flooded on the edges and went up and down,
otherwise safe for now

Ditto for Mirror Lake in Calais. NEK lakes should be good through midmorning Saturday.
