End Of the Ice Storm (Until Next Time)

image of landscape through ice on tree branchI got back to Peterborough last week just before the weather warmed up and all the ice melted.

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.)

It wasn’t.

Beautiful. Very, very cold. But beautiful.
