Islanders Find No Obstacle in Winter’s Charge

Put in Bay Snowmobile As mid-morning temperatures dropped from 12°F to 8°F in less than an hour, and the wind chill factor hit -1°F along South Bass Island’s south-eastern shore, hardy residents harnessed 1970’s technology to reach their destination.  Seen in the image to the left are Bridget Wise (operator) and Donna Steinbach on a Scorpion snowmobile belonging to John Dodge.  Notice the glee in Ms. Steinbach’s eyes!  It was a first-time experience for the native Virginian.
