Massachusetts has had eleven people get Eastern Equine Encephalitis - a disease that causes your brain to swell.

Four of those people have died.

We are spraying to try an kill the mosquitoes, and yet people are still being infected. The only thing that will completely stop the mosquitoes - is a killing frost.

100 years ago, we harvested ice TWICE a winter, and sold it all around the world. This was a very large business. Ice had to be 18-24 inches thick in order to last, when packed into sawdust all through the summer. It was harvested from December to February, at least.

A few years ago, the first killing frost we had here - was December 4th. We have had winters when the ice did not even freeze across the lakes and ponds - let alone freeze enough to be walked on, let alone freeze 18-24" thick - let alone TWICE in a winter.
Sincerely, Neil
