Ice Breakup

We awoke Sunday morning to open water on the river.  
It has since continued warm and rainy and the water is completely open and flowing high.
The last few weeks of winter are always the most difficult for me. 
Even with colder temperatures, it would be unusual for the river to refreeze.
The open water will attract birds migrating north and it will make all the difference.


  1. Spring is inevitable when the river thaws.

  2. Ice and barren trees. Seems like a distant, distant dream.
