    When the southwest winds a blowin’ and the temperature’s just right, the salty seas turn to ice in Boothbay Harbor.

    January's bitter wind chills have hardened the inner harbor into sheets of ice, three inches thick in some spots. The ice is not strong enough to support a person, but just thick enough for a brave little remote controlled Mini Cooper named “Silver,” equipped with a video camera.

    Did I miss something? Seemed like it got out a little ways and got stuck?

    I thought he was going to attach a fishing line so he could reel it back in if something unexpected happened?

    I don't remember if my Chilli red R/C Mini has the horn and motor noises, it's been a while since I played with it.....
