Sun on the Icy Stream

Winter Ice Stream January 2014 (2)

On a lighter note – The temp Finally got above freezing today here in Pennsylvania! My stream seldom freezes the whole way across because it runs fast and has several foot tall falls. A few years ago it did freeze completely after a big heavy snow filled in the holes and i could see these patterns in it that looked like a luge course and i figured out later it was from a rare river otter, which i did manage to see one time that winter. Now the water has fallen and the thick ice starting to break into big pieces. Its early and may refreeze but i hope this weeks long sub zero temperature pattern will even out a bit. Enjoy the pics!
