Small mountains of dirty, discarded snow blocked my view of the eastern branch of the Elizabeth River as I drove by to check on the boat ramp. Walking around the snow piles I saw the "closed until further notice" sign still in place, and the large concrete blocks too. I hope to be sailing within a month, but I suspect it will be out of Elizabeth City, N.C. where there is a very nice ramp.
Maybe winter will end - it snowed again today - and maybe there will in fact be further notice saying the ramp is open. I'm not counting on either.
