Above is Rice Lake distorted through a coating of ice on a branch beside the frozen water. (If you click on the photo to look at it close up, you can see the horizon, trees and branches.)
Everything was topped by a thick layer of ice. Not wrapped in ice, like the storm last year, but resting on top. The ground, too, was iced. These snowmobilers must have been having a great time out on the lake.
Beautiful. Very, very cold. But beautiful.
