They start Wednesday!  Ice cutting on the Kennebec, that is...

The Associated Press said the Coast Guard is urging fishermen to remove their ice shacks to make way for ice breaking this week on the frozen Kennebec River. Four Coast Guard vessels are going to begin breaking ice on Wednesday.

Once the Kennebec River is broken out, the Coast Guard will shift operations to the Penobscot River and break ice up to Bangor according to AP.
