Ice

Nov. 18th, 2016 09:26 pm
We had nice cold winter weather for a time, but the last few days have been above freezing, and ice has formed everywhere. Then it goes away.

I went for a walk. Walking is okay, since there is usually a little snow beside the road in which to put your feet. Crossing a road is dangerous, though.

On one of the bridges over the canal, I stopped and looked down. I saw something spectacular. The water is very swift and smooth, but there had been time for a thin layer of ice to form. It had now come off. I stood on the bridge, watching sheets if ice floating by -- as wide as the canal itself, and probably fifty metres long, or so. Small bits were being torn off at the edges, but they kept coming.

Beautiful.
I think it's time to start feeding the birds again. A moment ago, there were two great tits on the balcony, and they were knocking at the window. Loudly.
